The Greens are currently considering law reform to create specific offenses of receiving harvested or trafficked organs within NSW or overseas. The consultation paper about this reform was released on 22 January 2013. We have decided to extend the consultation period until the 7 March 2013 to allow all of those who are interested to have a say. The consultation paper is available here.

You can either make a submission online by filling in the short survey here or sending in a written submission via email to [email protected] or in hard copy to Office of David Shoebridge, NSW Parliament House, Macquarie Street Sydney NSW 2000.

If you have any questions or require assistance please don’t hesitate to contact the office on 9230 3030.

Greens NSW MP Jamie Parker recently received correspondence about this matter from the Minister for Health Jillian Skinner which supports our contention that this is a problem within NSW. You can download a copy of this letter here:
