In January the Westminster government announced a £20 million compensation settlement for those born with deformities after their mothers took the morning sickness drug Distaval during pregnancy.
The Scottish Government has so far been silent as to whether a similar regime will be implemented through the Thalidomide Trust for Scottish victims.
Scottish Labour MSP Jackie Baillie is in the process of placing a motion in the Scottish Parliament calling for a similar compensation pilot to be introduced north of the border.
Jackie Baillie has previously been instrumental in helping Thompsons successfully campaign for a public inquiry into the C-Diff hospital outbreaks.
Hopefully she can enjoy further success for these long suffering victims.
