§ Miss Kirkbride
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list the vaccines and their manufacturers licensed since 1986 which contain thiomersal(a) which were administered in the routine vaccination programme for children and (b) which were available for non-routine vaccination for children. 
§ Ms Blears
All childhood vaccines licensed since 1986 which have ever contained thiomersal as an excipient are listed in the table. Some of these vaccines no longer contain thiomersal as an excipient because it has been removed from the finished vaccines. The table is annotated to identify which vaccines have been used or are used as part of the childhood immunisation schedule and have been centrally purchased by the Department of Health.147W
