Victims deserve truth on testing
It seems quite extraordinary that it should fall to a Dail committee to demand that the Department of Health and multinational pharmaceutical companies release files relating to vaccine trials on Irish babies in state care.
If someone in the department is concealing relevant facts, it is a disgrace. Two weeks have passed since this matter of considerable concern was brought into the public domain, yet the response from the department has been minimal.
The Committee on Health and Children chairman has said that the content of the files, when examined, may make a formal inquiry necessary.
