HC Deb 16 July 1974 vol 877 cc66-7W
30. Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what action she is taking to provide legislation to compensate vaccine-damaged children and to insure against future accidents.

Dr. Owen

As I explained in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Meriden (Mr. Tomlinson) and the hon. Member for Eastleigh (Mr. Price) on 7th May—[Vol. 873, c. 78.]—the Royal Commission on Compensation and Civil Liability is considering the whole question of compensation for damage resulting from vaccination.
