UK House of Commons Debate

UK House of Commons Debate

The All-Party Parliamentary Committee on Haemophilia and Contaminated Blood (APPG), co-chaired by Dame Diana Johnson MP and Sir Peter Bottomley MP has secured a debate in the House of Commons. MPs will call on the government to announce what it is doing to implement the Infected Blood Inquiry’s recent report on compensation.

The debate is important as decisions on the payment of compensation will ultimately be made by the UK government.

What MPs will discuss

On 22 June, MPs will debate the following motion: “That this House calls on the Government to announce before the House rises for the summer recess what steps they will take to implement the recommendations of the second interim report of the Infected Blood Inquiry published on 5 April 2023, and to publish a timetable for implementation.” The timing of the debate has not yet been confirmed but it is likely to start around 11:00am. You’ll be able to watch it on

Involve your MP

The debate is a chance to involve your MP in this crucial issue. You can find your MP’s contact details here by typing in your postcode, your constituency or their name.

To raise this issue with your MP you can:

  • arrange to meet them at their regular surgeries for constituents
  • write to them by letter or email

We’ve drafted a suggested letter for you to download, with space to insert your details and add information about your personal circumstances. MPs are only able to respond to their own constituents, so it is really important that you include your full name and address in the letter.
