HL Deb 08 March 2001 vol 623 cc43-4WA
The Duke of Montrose

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Department of Health requires the Blood Transfusion Service to supply any records of blood donations given by those subsequently diagnosed as suffering from Creutzfeldt-Jakob's disease; and, if not, why not. [HL1044]

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath

The CJD Surveillance Unit and the UK Blood Services collaborate on a study to trace blood donations made by individuals who subsequently develop variant CJD. Information on the study is included in the CJD Surveillance Unit Annual Report, a copy of which is available in the Library.
