UK: MP Robbie Moore addresses Infected Blood Inquiry in Parliament


Member of Parliament for Keighley constituency in the United Kingdom, Robbie Moore, appealed to the Government to immediately accept the Infected Blood Inquiry’s recommendations and asked to compensate all the affected while addressing the Parliament recently.

British Conservative Party Politician and Member of Parliament for Keighley Constituency in the United Kingdom, Robbie Moore, took to his official social media handle to share some updates from the Parliamentary session and addressed the Blood Infected issues among people.


While sharing some updates from his parliamentary session in the United Kingdom, MP Robbie shared that infected blood is a serious issue that must be addressed.

while conveying the facts, MP Robbie highlighted, “Between the 1970s and 1980s, approximately 5,000 persons with haemophilia and other bleeding disorders were infected with HIV and hepatitis viruses through
the use of infected blood, some unintentionally passing it on to their partners.”

Since then, more than 3,000 individuals have died, and only around 250 of the 1,250 persons who have HIV are still living.
Time is of the essence for victims and families affected by the Infected Blood scandal.

Meanwhile, MP Robbie has also raised the issue in Parliament and urged the Government to immediately accept the Infected Blood Inquiry recommendations in full to compensate all affected.

While suspecting the infected blood issue, MP Robbie outlined several other issues affected and added, “The individuals and their families impacted have gone through enough. An award must be made for injury impact, social impact, autonomy impact and care and financial loss. It is proper and fair that the Government listen to the inquiry’s calls.”

At last, MP Robbie expressed his pleasure and hugely thanked Ilkley resident Clive Smith, Chair of the Haemophilia Society, with whom he has discussed this issue at length.
