HC Deb 11 December 1984 vol 69 c409W
Mr. J. Enoch Powell

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will in future when supplying statements of service to former Army personnel refrain from entering service in Northern Ireland under service in foreign countries.

Mr. Lee

No such change of practice is needed, since service in Northern Ireland should not appear in the statements of Army service provided by my Department under the heading of service in foreign countries. My noble Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Armed Forces is writing to the right hon. Member.
