HC Deb 10 June 1998 vol 313 c606W
Mr. Hancock

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what research his Department has(a) commissioned and (b) evaluated on the effects of counselling for ex-servicemen. [44387]

Dr. Reid

The Ministry of Defence has not commissioned or evaluated any research into the effects of counselling for ex-Service personnel. However, my Department maintains links with numerous ex-Service organisations and charities, including the Ex-Services Mental Welfare Society (Combat Stress), which provides limited counselling facilities. We very much value the contributions which these organisations make towards the resettlement and aftercare of ex-Service personnel.
