I recognise that the use of Infected Blood and blood products was an appalling tragedy. Clinical, legal and social care experts are being appointed to advise the Cabinet Office on technical considerations to inform the Government’s response to the Inquiry’s recommendations on compensation. The Inquiry will publish its final report on 20th May and I have committed to updating Parliament within 25 sitting days of its publication.
