I refer the right hon. Member to the answer provided by my Noble Friend Baroness Goldie on 29 June 2021 HL1163. Work continues to ensure those who may have been put at risk by the trials are identified and offered medical intervention if appropriate.

As previously stated at the request of Ministers, the Permanent Secretary commissioned a Health and Safety review of the AJAX trials (which will include updating the number of personnel affected). The Secretary of State has confirmed that the summary review will be published.
