#SoftOptOutNI gets Executive Approval

First Minister Paul Givan last night pledged his support to advancing legislation for soft opt-out organ donation in Northern Ireland.

Tweeting the announcement, Mr Givan said he had “given approval for legislation from @RobinSwannMoH on Soft Opt-Out Organ Donation to proceed by way of urgent procedure to the Northern Ireland Assembly”. 

He was speaking after west Belfast man Máirtín MacGabhann, whose four-year-old son Dáithí needs heart transplant surgery, had appealed to politicians to act amid fears the approaching summer recess at Stormont would stall progress.
