A mass lobby of Parliament will take place on Wednesday 28 February to demand that the government takes action on compensation for people infected and affected by the contaminated blood scandal.
The lobby, organised by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Haemophilia and Contaminated Blood in conjunction with campaign groups, is an opportunity to lobby your MP to help force government action.
We urge you to contact your MP, asking them to meet you in Parliament on 28 February. If you can’t get to Parliament, ask them to show their support by attending the lobby. We’ve put together a draft letter here, which you can amend to include your personal details.
You can either post the letter to your MP or copy it into an email. You can find your MP’s name and contact details here.
As the event takes place on the day of Prime Minister’s Questions we hope MPs will help their constituents to get seats in the public gallery. We’ll be working with MPs to try to ensure that questions about the contaminated blood scandal are put to the Prime Minister.
With a general election expected later this year, we’re looking for commitments from the government and the Labour Party that the recommendations of the inquiry will be honoured. Time is running out to achieve this, which is why it’s important to use this lobby as effectively as we can.
Details of the mass lobby:
- Open to anyone infected or affected by the contaminated blood scandal
- Wednesday 28 February in Westminster Hall from 11.00am to 2.30pm
- No political banners or placards are allowed in Westminster Hall. You are welcome to wear a red, yellow and black ribbon to show your support
- There will be a photocall at 12.45pm.

The event is open to everyone without a need to register. Let us know if you and/ or your MP plan to attend by emailing email@example.com so we can look out for you. Find out about how to get into Parliament here.
