Last month, the Infected Blood Inquiry chairman, Sir Brian Langstaff, ruled that victims should receive payouts ‘without delay’.

Last night a No 10 source said: ‘The infected blood scandal was a tragedy for everyone involved, and the Prime Minister strongly believes that all those who suffered so terribly as a result of this injustice should receive compensation as quickly as possible.’
