  Ashley Fox (ECR ), in writing. ‒ I voted in favour of this resolution on thalidomide victims. Germany should take responsibility for the government’s actions in the 1970s and allow the victims access to the survivors fund. The money is urgently needed to help care for those affected by this drug and adapt homes so they are able to live as independently as possible.

It is a disgrace that the fight for recognition from the pharmaceutical company is still ongoing. I hope that this report will enable some real progress to be made for many victims.
