Since the beginning of 2012, we have received nine Parliamentary Questions and 147 pieces of correspondence on the subject of the continuation of financial support for victims of Thalidomide.

My honourable friend the Minister of State for Care Services met with the chief executive of the Thalidomide Trust and members of the National Advisory Council on 12 June 2012 and aims to meet them again in the autumn.

Departmental officials are also due to meet members of the National Advisory Council and the Thalidomide Trust in July of this year to discuss the evaluation report for year two of the grant.
