To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations he has received concerning compensation in those cases where Opren has been prescribed under the National Health Service and the patient has died.

As a result of current proceedings before the High Court the Department has received a number of statements where it is alleged that death was attributable to Opren and we have answered a number of parliamentary questions on this specific subject.
