HC Deb 04 July 1974 vol 876 c268W
Mr. Ancram

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will seek powers to compensate victims of secondary infection from poliomyelitis vaccines where there is no legal liability against the manufacturer; and whether he will consider proposing making a monetary contribution available in compensation for loss of earnings.

Mr. William Ross

When the Royal Commission on Compensation and Civil Liability reports I shall consider carefully any recommendations it may make having a bearing on matters of this kind.
