Breaking: Mr Justice Treacy has ruled on the Blood Ban for Gay and Bisexual Men.
In his judgement he has found that the lifetime ban on Gay and Bisexual men donating blood is irrational. By continuing the ban in Northern Ireland Minister Poots has been found to act beyond his capacity in breach of the ministerial code. It now falls to UK Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt to quash the ban in Northern Ireland.
More details will follow. Thank you
