HL Deb 10 February 1994 vol 551 c65WA
Lord Ashley of Stoke

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many applications were made for vaccine damage payments in each of the last two years for which figures are available; what proportion have been successful; and what were the types of vaccine for which claims were successful.

Viscount Astor

Information is not available in the form requested. The available information is in the table.

Number of applications Number of awards Number awaiting con sideration by Vaccine Damage Tribunal
1992 44 6 2
1993 49 4 9

Note: Claimants are asked to list all vaccines which were administered to the child, since in determining a claim all vaccines are considered. It is, therefore, not possible to assign fault to any particular vaccine.
