HC Deb 11 March 1997 vol 292 c183W
13. Miss Lestor

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on Gulf war syndrome. [18047]

Mr. Soames

Some of the British troops who served during the Gulf war have subsequently developed a range of illnesses. The Government fully understand the health concerns of Gulf veterans and, governed by the best available medical advice, we treat these concerns with the grave seriousness and attention that they rightly demand.
