HC Deb 22 June 1994 vol 245 cc205-6W
Ms Lynne

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what steps she takes to ensure that the availability of the vaccine Gammaglobulin is uniform throughout the country; and how many cases of shortfall have been reported to her Department in the last two years.

Dr. Mawhinney

Demand for Gammaglobulin is normally met by manufacturers. The Department is aware of two reports since July 1993 of shortages which were the result of supply problems experienced by manufacturers. The Department is in regular contact with the manufacturers and is continuing to monitor the situation.
