I have continued to press for the victims of the contaminated blood scandal – where people were given contaminated blood via the NHS during the 1970s and 80s – and we have secured another concession from the Government. Through our campaigning we have secured legal aid for those submitting evidence to the enquiry.
However, I wanted more details from the minister on if a cap would be in place. The minister said it was for the lawyers to decide what a reasonable level would be. I will continue to press for further details as we go forward as people need assurances that they will be supported through this difficult process.
