Written answers (Question to Defence)

A Malaria Chemoprophylaxis Working Group was established in January 2011 and reported in April 2013. The Group was re-convened in August 2015 and reported in October 2017. The purpose of the Group was to review, inter alia, issues arising in relation to the use of Lariam, particularly in the context of the current and potential litigation.

Both reports were produced by the Working Group in the context of current and potential litigation and are, therefore, legally privileged as is the information about the Working Group.
