MEP for the East Midlands Margot Parker said an inquiry into the potential cover-up behind the contaminated blood scandal of the 1970s and 1980s must provide answers to the families of victims.

The East Midlands MEP said the inquiry, which led to nearly 3,000 people dying from blood infected with hepatitis viruses and HIV, was the greatest scandal in the history of the NHS.

She said: "It is imperative this inquiry provides answers for those who have suffered and their families.

"People must be held to account and answers given - the lack of responsibility taken by the authorities is scandalous and this must never be allowed to happen again.

"The truth has to be uncovered and lessons learned."
