The Council launched a public consultation on human bodies in medicine and research on 20 April 2010.

The Working Party is seeking people's views on a number of questions, including:
  • How far should we as a society go in encouraging or even incentivising people to provide material?

  • What control should a person providing material have over its future use?

  • Can useful comparisons be made with people taking part 'healthy volunteer' clinical trials where people 'give over' their body for a short time for research purposes?
