returning tissue blocks to relatives

From:"Dr. Allen A. Smith" <>

I am disturbed by the suggestion from the U.K. that tissue blocks from
autopsies be returned to relatives of the deceased.
I cannot see what use the tissue blocks from an autopsy would be to
Taking them out of the pathology lab system seems to be a formula for ending
all academic research in human pathology.
