Volume 684: debated on Monday 10 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What information they have on the numbers and identities of veterans of the 1990-91 Gulf War who made war pension claims for Gulf War syndrome before October 2005.[HL6575]

At the end of September 2005, some 2,920 ex-service men who served in the first Gulf conflict were in receipt of a war disablement pension. Accurate information on the number and identities of veterans who claimed Gulf War syndrome could be obtained only by detailed examination of individual cases.
