Lord Morris of Manchester

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Bach on 19 January (WA 108) regarding the Ministry of Defence's reaction to the report on Scientific Progress in Understanding Gulf War Illnesses, prepared for the United States Secretary for Veteran Affairs by the Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Illnesses, to which research and by which members of the committee the Minister was referring when stating on 21 December 2004 that "much of the research drawn on to formulate the recommendations was carried out by members of the committee, which raises some concern about objectivity". [HL1106]

Lord Bach
