To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether his Department will evaluate the implications of papers 8581 and 8582 presented to the fourth international conference on AIDS in Stockholm in 1988 relating to the effects on visuospatial skills amongst males with early HIV infection and relating to a general deficit of vigilance amongst HIV positive individuals; and if he will make a statement regarding his policy of not screening all pilots for HIV.
