Infected Blood Inquiry: Government Response - Statement (19 Dec 2023)

Baroness Meacher: The Government’s Statement on their response to the Infected Blood Inquiry is a deep disappointment—that is an understatement. The Commons Minister said, and our Minister repeated it—I in no way criticise our Minister for this; I respect her greatly—that the “distress and trauma that each individual has faced as a result of this tragedy is unimaginable”. Yet the Minister went on...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Second Reading (18 Dec 2023)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: ...trauma to children and young people following the major incidents in this country that we have heard about, such as the Manchester bombing and the Grenfell Tower fire, and indeed the infected blood scandal, cannot be underestimated. That was starkly illustrated abroad following the terrorist bomb at Brussels airport in which 32 victims died. Although Shanti De Corte, age 17 at the time,...

Infected Blood Inquiry: Government Response (18 Dec 2023)

Nick Thomas-Symonds: ...clear. I applaud the work of my right hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Dame Diana Johnson), the campaigning and advocacy organisations, the all-party group on haemophilia and contaminated blood, the journalist Caroline Wheeler and all who have worked tirelessly to bring us to this point. I, too, pay tribute to the bravery of the victims of this scandal, who, over...

2. Questions to the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: Changes to the State Pension Age (13 Dec 2023)

Mick Antoniw: environment where, when we clearly recognise there are injustices, we take the necessary steps to rectify them as soon as possible. We don't want the situation we've had, for example, with the contaminated blood, which is now coming to a head, but after how many years and after how many people have passed away before justice is resolved. 

Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2023)

Mike Kane: May I concur with the Prime Minister’s comments about our armed forces, Christmas and Mark Drakeford? My constituent Fred Bates is 74, he has liver cancer and he is a victim of the contaminated blood products scandal. The Prime Minister had a chance to do right by Fred last week, but he failed to do so and lost the vote in this House. After half a century, Fred wishes to know when he and...

Hillsborough: Bishop James Jones Report ( 6 Dec 2023)

Clive Efford: Contaminated blood, Grenfell, Hillsborough—the one thing they all have in common is that ordinary people suffered an incredible tragedy, and then the authorities and the establishment circled the wagons to deny them justice. What this report has exposed is a failure at the centre of the establishment to serve the public. This report is calling for candour from the people who represent such...

2. Business Statement and Announcement ( 5 Dec 2023)

John Griffiths: Business Minister, this week in the House of Commons, MPs thankfully voted to speed up the compensation scheme for victims of the NHS infected blood scandal, and UK Ministers will now have to set up a body to run the scheme within three months of a new Bill becoming law. This was rightly I think characterised as an important step forward in what has been an extraordinarily long fight for...

Victims and Prisoners Bill: New Clause 20 - Domestic abuse related death reviews ( 4 Dec 2023)

Jim Shannon: ...the Government are rightly making payments to the victims of the Post Office Horizon scandal before the final report of that public inquiry is published. An independent inquiry into the infected blood scandal was due to publish its final report this autumn, but that document will now be published in March 2024. I am incredulous that we are letting this go any further. If the Government are...

Nuclear Test Veterans: Medical Records — [Martin Vickers in the Chair] (28 Nov 2023)

Emma Lewell-Buck: the MOD that sent them to the blasts without any understanding of the protection they needed. Men stood in their shorts and vests, and were simply asked to turn their back on nuclear blasts that contaminated the land around them and instantly killed all wildlife there. Litigation, petitions, information requests and pleas have all been sidelined by Governments who have stated that they...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (23 Nov 2023)

Mike Kane: The right hon. Member for Salisbury (John Glen) is the ninth Paymaster General since the contaminated blood inquiry reported. We have worked together on mesothelioma and other issues, so I know he is of good faith, but my constituent Fred Bates, who was a victim of the contaminated blood scandal, is now 74 and needs to know whether he will get compensation before it is too late.

Violence Reduction, Policing and Criminal Justice (15 Nov 2023)

Diana R. Johnson: ...plan to table the Bill in Parliament. Sadly, we have learnt from the King’s Speech that the Government’s priorities for this Session do not include delivering justice to victims of the infected blood scandal, the biggest treatment disaster in the history of the NHS. That is, of course, despite the Government’s accepting the moral case for compensation, despite repeatedly assuring us...

Building an NHS Fit for the Future (13 Nov 2023)

Robin Walker: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. I will do my very best. I agree with one thing that the hon. Member for Wansbeck (Ian Lavery) said.

Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Steve Tuckwell) on his excellent maiden speech and welcome him to...

Member for Edinburgh North and Leith (Deidre Brock) asked the Prime Minister about compensation for those infected and affected by the contaminated blood scandal. The Prime Minister responded: “What I would say is that extensive work has been going on in Government for a long time, co-ordinated by the Minister for the Cabinet...

Points of Order (23 Oct 2023)

Diana R. Johnson: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. Today, after I had asked for a statement from the Paymaster General on the recently announced delay to the infected blood inquiry’s final report, a short, 193-word statement has been laid by the Government. That number is in stark contrast to the 485 people who are estimated to have died since the inquiry started, with one person dying every four...

Covid-19 Vaccine Damage Payments Bill (20 Oct 2023)

Christopher Chope: ...a couple of other points. If the Government are not prepared to increase the rate at which people can be paid, how are we going to get anywhere? At the moment, people who are sadly victims of the contaminated blood scandal do not have to show 60% disability in order to qualify for compensation. Should there be some equivalence between the compensation that is payable under the contaminated...
