Minister Ross ‘risking lives’ in donor row

TRANSPORT Minister Shane Ross‘ inaction over organ donor information is risking lives, a senator claimed yesterday.

Fianna Fail’s Mark Daly said nearly one million drivers have indicated their willingness to donate on their licences.

But he alleged Mr Ross is refusing to allow health care professionals access to this information.

Ahead of Organ Donor Week, which begins tomorrow, Mr Daly called for a change in the law.

He added: “It is unacceptable and short-sighted not to allow information that could save and transform lives to be shared with medical professionals.”
