asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what reply she has sent to Mr. Roy Stokes, of 66 Newton Road, Eastleigh, Hampshire, in answer to his letter of 2nd April 1975, seeking action in respect of his vaccine-damaged son Keith Stokes following his petition to Parliament.
There is no indication that a copy of Mr. Stokes' letter of 2nd April was received in my Department, but I have obtained a copy of this circular letter which asks for a reply to Mr. Stokes' earlier letter and petition. A reply to Mr. Stokes' petition was conveyed in my letters of 4th and 12th March to the hon. Member. I regret that, because of a misunderstanding, a separate letter was not, as promised, sent to Mr. Stokes and I am arranging for a reply to be sent to him.
