Health: Haemophilia

Volume 713: debated on Tuesday 20 October 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government when they intend to hold a debate on the Department of Health's response to the report of the Independent Public Inquiry, headed by Lord Archer of Sandwell, into the 1,937 deaths of haemophilia patients caused by contaminated NHS blood and blood products. [HL5530]

I refer the noble Lord to Lord Darzi's Answer of 3 June to Lord Morris (Official Report, col. WA 92). The decision on whether to hold a debate on the government response to the Archer report remains a matter for the House business managers.
