Drivers applying for new licences will soon have to answer a question about organ donation.
Applicants can skip over a question when applying for a licence under the current system.
But from July the new procedure will make would-be drivers state if they want to sign up to the NHS Organ Donor Register or defer a decision until a later date.
And while we are at it , those employed by the tobacco industry ought to be asked if they would mind donating thier lungs if they die, those who produce heavy alcoholic beverages should be asked to donate thier liver upon death.
I don't think its safe to be a part of this system for organ donation.

My attitude to this is that if they want drivers to donate organs, then I believe that persons arrested for and convicted of knife related crimes should be asked the question as well. And while we are at it , those employed by the tobacco industry ought to be asked if they would mind donating thier lungs if they die, those who produce heavy alcoholic beverages should be asked to donate thier liver upon death. Also I believe that every member of the current government should offer up the vast percentage of thier wealth upon death to the people whos livelihoods they are in the process of destroying.
And while we are at it, lets have all the surgeons convicted of malpractice forced to donate thier entire organ system to victims of surgical failiure, and so on and so forth etc etc. Or, an even better idea, the government could always just full on QUIT making choices on the behalf of the people, and do as they are blasted well told. No cuts, no lost jobs, more freedom, or we burn you all. Thats the game, its time they played it.
