MPs have given their backing to a bill that would introduce an opt-out system for organ donation.
The Commons gave the Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill a second reading, without a vote. It will now move on to detailed scrutiny at 'committee stage'.
The Health Minister Jackie Doyle-Price said the government would refer to the legislation as "Max's law" after Max Johnson, a 10-year-old boy needing a heart transplant who's been campaigning for a change in the law.
As the bill went through, Geoffrey Robinson, who initiated the legislation, called it a "great moment".
MPs also approved another bill at 'second reading' stage, which would remove the time limit on British citizens abroad voting in general elections, currently set at 15 years.
That bill too will now pass on to committee stage.
