To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the possibility of cholera vaccine no longer being produced in the United Kingdom; and if he will make a statement.

Production difficulties earlier this year at the United Kingdom manufacturing site led to the temporary importation of cholera vaccine. The production difficulties have now been resolved and I am glad to say that the United Kingdom-produced vaccine will become available early next year. I expect that cholera vaccine will continue to be produced in the United Kingdom for the foreseeable future.
