To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what funding Combat Stress received from his Department in each of the last five years; and what funding is expected to be provided in each of the next three years. (145207)

For MOD expenditure from 2001 to 2006 in respect of individual remedial treatment of qualifying war pensioners at Combat Stress Homes in England, I refer the hon. Gentleman to the answer I gave on 12 December 2006, Official Report, column 933W, to the hon. Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Willie Rennie). MOD expenditure to Combat Stress for 2006-07 was £2.5 million.

Separate funding is provided from NHS Scotland for war pensioners’ treatment at Hollybush House.
