The Department of Health has issued a statement to say that files relating to controversial child vaccine trials are not missing.
Former residents of orphanages and mother-and-baby homes are calling on the Government to publish all files relating to the trials.
At least 211 children in orphanages and mother-and-baby homes took part in four-in-one vaccine trials in the 1960s and 1970s.
The Laffoy commission on Child Abuse was to investigate what happened but that investigation was dropped following court action taken by the medical practitioners involved.
