§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will give details of his proposed inquiry into the sale abroad of blood plasma through the National Heart hospital in London; and if he will confirm that all such sales have ceased pending his inquiry.
§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
Inquiries are being made by the Department and the health authorities concerned. I understand that Nordisk Diagnostics has suspended purchases of the blood in question.
