Sinn Féin Health spokesperson Councillor Sandra Duffy  has welcomed news that victims and survivors of the contaminated blood scandal will receive compensation payments. 

Sandra Duffy  said: 

“I welcome the news that victims and survivors of the contaminated blood scandal in the north will receive compensation payments. 

“This has been made possible through additional money released by my party colleague and finance minister, Conor Murphy.
