I rise to present a petition in the same terms as that so eloquently presented by my hon. Friend Jessica Morden just a few moments ago. I thank my right hon. Friend Dame Diana Johnson, who has led the fight for justice for victims of the infected blood scandal in this House. My constituent Sue Sparkes lost her husband, Les, owing to infected blood in 1990, leaving their two sons without a father. She has been tirelessly fighting for justice ever since.

Following is the full text of the petition:

[The petition of residents of the constituency of Cardiff West,

Declares that people who received infected blood and who have suffered as a consequence have, along with their families, waited for too long for redress.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to implement the recommendations in the Second Interim Report of the Infected Blood Inquiry without delay.

And the petitioners remain, etc.]
