We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

Following permission in October 2017 to bring forward a Private Members Bill, Mr Martyn Perkins MHK sought views from the public on draft legislation about introducing a ‘presumed consent’ system for organ donation between 29 March 2018 and 8 June 2018. The intention of the Bill is to increase the number of people willing to become an organ donor.

You Said

In total 292 responses were received: 96% of the responses were from Isle of Man residents and 98% were from private individuals.

•    82 people gave their permission to publish their response in full
•    157 people gave their permission to publish anonymously
•    53 people did not give consent to publish their response

When asked whether they are a registered organ donor, people responded:

•    Yes: 166 (57%)
•    No: 79 (27%)
•    Don’t know: 18 (6%)
•    No – but I have thought about registering: 15 (5%)
•    No – I don’t know how to register: 11 (4%)
•    Not answered: 3 (1%)

A number of respondents had had experience of part of the process of organ donation. 89% of respondents had discussed organ donation with family members or next of kin.

Mr Perkins is grateful to all those who took the time to submit their views to this consultation.

The Attorney General’s Chambers sought your views on proposed new legislation which aims to improve and clarify the position in relation to certain evidence in criminal cases, particularly in relation to hearsay evidence.

We received one response from the judiciary on technical issues relating to the power to make Rules and the use of “live link” video recording.

We Did

We considered the response and the draft Bill was amended accordingly. The Bill was introduced into the Legislative Council on 26 June 2018.

We Asked

As part of the root and branch review of the Isle of Man’s election legislation, the Cabinet Office sought your views on how elections should be run in the Isle of Man in future between 5 April to 20 May 2018.

We received 109 responses in total, from a number of types of respondent, including organisations, local authorities, Tynwald members and individuals.

  • 33 gave permission to publish their response in full
  • 63 gave permission to publish anonymously
  • 13 did not give consent to publish on the Consultation Hub
