MMR Campaigners Vow to Continue Compensation Fight By John Aston, Cathy Gordon and Louise Barnett, PA News The parents of children allegedly damaged by the MMR vaccine tonight vowed to continue campaigning for compensation despite losing a court battle for funding. Their legal bid today suffered another blow when a High Court judge rejected an application for a judicial review of a decision to withdraw public funding to fight test cases. The decision to withdraw funds was taken by the Legal Services Commission (LSC) and upheld by the Funding Review Committee. Richard Follis, partner in solicitors firm Alexander Harris, representing hundreds of parents and their children, said they would consider whether there were grounds to appeal to the Court of Appeal. Mr Harris added: "We will also be giving urgent consideration to how the very serious concerns that exist about the safety of MMR can now be addressed. "Since this litigation will no longer be funded, and there is no sign that the Government or pharmaceutical companies are taking up the very serious questions that research in the litigation has posed, we as a law firm representing many grievously injured children will now have to consider whether we press the Government to properly investigate matters the drug companies have attempted to sweep under the carpet." Comment: Of course he would say that. he i sadvocating for his clients, and for his enormous fee. The MMR litigation has so far cost £15 million and the LSC believes it would cost another £10 million to bring to trial. Comment: How many austici children could have used those big pounds to help in their education, growth and development? What an incredible waste of resources. Today's judgment concerned the lead cases in a group action involving about 1,000 claimants. Isabella Thomas, spokeswoman for Justice Awareness and Basic Support (JABS), said: "We will fight on to the end. This doesn't stop us because we have to have justice. "Parents are willing to sell their homes. Our children's lives are at stake. To watch your child in such severe pain is dreadful. Comment: Pain is not a symptom of autism. However, the perception of disability in a child is often a reflection of what they see from their parents. Sadly, these parents are making their children more disabled. "We do believe the public are very strongly behind us and we are asking for a public inquiry into the whole issue." Comment: Believe what you want. Drop this wasted litigation and get on with being a parent. 10, both had the MMR vaccine, said many of the claimants involved in the court battle were members of JABS, a support group set up for the carers of "vaccine damaged children". "These children have a life sentence and we need to find a way of protecting them against that awful vaccine strain that is in their systems," she said.
