HC Deb 04 March 1997 vol 291 cc587-8W
Mr. Tony Lloyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what training assistance British military personnel have provided in Rwanda over the past five years. [18474]

Mr. Soames

I apologised to the House on 10 December last year for the fact that earlier parliamentary questions on this subject had been answered incorrectly. Full details of what is now known about the use of organophosphate pesticides by British service personnel during the Gulf war are contained in the organophosphate pesticide investigation team report which was published on 10 December 1996. A copy of this report was also placed in the Library.
