HC Deb 26 February 1988 vol 128 c379W
Mr. Steinberg

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the answer of 15 February,Official Report, column 446, how many soldiers who applied to leave Her Majesty's forces during the last 12 months gave depression as the reason, or otherwise complained of that condition; and what treatment was given to the 13 service men diagnosed as suffering from depression.

Mr. Freeman

The information requested on the reasons given for applying to leave the services cannot be ascertained without disproportionate effort. It is not my Department's policy to discuss the medical treatment of individual cases, details of which are held in confidence.

Forward to
