HC Deb 26 January 1984 vol 52 cc702-3W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the current average cost per person for an assessment in respect of an individual's entitlement to a payment under the Vaccine Damage Payments Act.

Mr. Newton

Vaccine damage payments form only a small part of the work of the Department and the information needed to make a reliable estimate of the cost of assessing a claim is not available.
