HC Deb 16 December 1980 vol 996 cc89-90W
Mr. Norman Atkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what arrangements he intends to make to ensure that any blood donor not wishing his or her blood to be sold for profit and use by non-National Health Service organisations can be so assured prior to his donation of blood.

Dr. Vaughan

[pursuant to his reply, 5 December 1980]: In this country we have a voluntary blood donor service, which provides a very high quality of blood and we are proud of this service. There is no question of commercialising the NHS blood donor service.
