Mr. Sedgemore

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether he will instruct his Department not to purchase brands of whisky, gin, vodka and brandy manufactured by the Distillers Company until the Distillers Company pays the 85 thalidomide children on the Y list the same compensations as that paid to children on the X list which was drawn up prior to the 1973 settlement.

Mr. Les Huckfield

I refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Social Services to my hon. Friend the Member for Bedwellty (Mr. Kinnock) today.
