Jonathan Djanogly urges Ministers to engage with families affected by the infected blood scandal

Following a Government update on the infected blood inquiry, Jonathan Djanogly welcomes the Government's determination to move faster towards a just resolution to this scandal and calls on Ministers to fully engage with victims’ families.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)

I welcome the Government’s clear determination, as shown by the Minister today, to move faster towards a just resolution to this sad and terrible scandal. As an MP representing a Huntingdon family devastated by this affair, who were long concerned by the inability to engage with Ministers, will my right hon. Friend confirm that ongoing engagement with victims’ families will take place with proper understanding of their tragic plight?

The Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General (Jeremy Quin)

I can confirm that. Most of us in our constituency capacities have been aware of the victims of this dreadful scandal. Through the right hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Dame Diana Johnson) and her APPG, I had the privilege of meeting representatives of those affected, and I am more than willing to do so again as we continue to progress our work.
