To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what recent progress his Department has made in formulating a new scheme of support for those who contracted haemophilia or hepatitis C as a result of contaminated NHS blood supplies; what assessment he has made of the effect on the implementation of such a scheme of the dissolution of Parliament before it is completed; and if he will make a statement.

Work on what can be done to improve the system of support for those affected by HIV or hepatitis C through historic treatment with NHS supplied blood or blood products is detailed and ongoing. When that work is complete, we will make an announcement to hon. Members and affected individuals.
