HC Deb 28 January 1975 vol 885 c73W
19. Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what action she is taking to ensure that vaccine-damaged children receive adequate compensation.

Mr. Alfred Morris

On 4th December I announced that the scope of the Family Fund administered by the Rowntree Trust had been extended to cover all severely handicapped children. This should provide a practical measure of assistance to vaccine-damaged children and their families pending the report of the Royal Commission.
