§ Mr. David Atkinson
asked the Prime Minister whether compensation has been sought on behalf of those victims and their dependants who have lost limbs and life as a result of the indiscriminate laying of mines without records by Argentine forces in the Falklands.
§ The Prime Minister
No. Those invalided from the armed forces by reason of their service and the dependants of those killed are eligible for awards from the Department of Health and Social Security and from the Ministry of Defence. Payments may also be made to injured servicemen and to dependants from the South Atlantic fund.
