HC Deb 20 January 1992 vol 202 c86W
Mr. Speller

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many claims against Exeter health authority relating to excessive doses of radiation have been made; how many have been settled; how many are outstanding; when he expects these to be settled; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dorrell

A total of 106 claims have been made to date. Of these 79 have been settled, a further six are under negotiation and 21 remain outstanding. The 21 outstanding represent claims which have been notified but where medical evidence indicates there may be no basis for any payment or where the claim is not currently being pursued. The health authority sends regular quarterly reports to all local hon. Members on this matter. The most recent report was issued on 16 January.
