To ask the Scottish Executive when heat treatment procedures were introduced in Scotland to eliminate the hepatitis C virus in blood products.

Answered by Susan Deacon (02/11/1999): The question is among a number of points which I have asked my Department to look at in relation to the safety of blood products from Hepatitis C. I also met with the Haemophilia Society to hear their concerns at first hand.

I have noted the question and the points also raised in S1W-840, S1W-841 and S1W-842, and these will be taken into account in the Department's enquiries. I will keep you informed of the outcome of these enquiries as soon as they are completed.
