asked Her Majesty's Government:

Why the Department of Health's audit review of the alleged shredding by civil servants of documents relating to the supply of infected blood-clotting products to people with haemophilia has not been published; and whether they will now place a copy of this document in the Library of the House and make it available to the independent public inquiry headed by Lord Archer of Sandwell.

The Review of Documentation Relating to the Safety of Blood Products 1970-1985 (non-A, non-B Hepatitis) was issued on 22 May, together with referenced documents. The referenced documents made available include the internal audit report carried out by the department in 2000.
