This petition is from the residents of Walsall South. The petitioners note that

“people who received infected blood and who have suffered as a consequence have, along with their families, waited far too long for redress.”

Some of them have found it very difficult to access their medical records over a long time, and today’s urgent question does not leave them any clearer about when they will get compensation.

“The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to implement the recommendations in the Second Interim Report of the Infected Blood Inquiry without delay.”

There are signatories to the petition who have been directly affected by the failure to implement the recommendations.

Following is the full text of the petition:

[The petition of residents of the constituency of Walsall South,

Declares that people who received infected blood and who have suffered as a consequence have, along with their families, waited far too long for redress.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to implement the recommendations in the Second Interim Report of the Infected Blood Inquiry without delay.

And the petitioners remain, etc.]
