LONDON: Britain said on Tuesday it would begin making further interim compensation payments to the victims of the contaminated blood and blood products scandal.
“The government will be making further interim payments ahead of the establishment of the full scheme,” minister John Glen told parliament, a day after a damning report blamed successive governments, officials and doctors for failures that resulted in more than 3,000 deaths.
“Payments of 210,000 pounds will be made to living infected beneficiaries,” he added.
