Gulf War: Pensions

Volume 684: debated on Monday 17 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Drayson on 28 June (WA 126), why, given that Ministers were briefed on the letter from the president of the Pensions Appeal Tribunals in preparation for the Starred Question on 8 June, why the Lord Drayson made no reference to that letter in his Answer.[HL6770]

It is not always possible to answer every point raised in an Oral Question in detail in the time available. The opportunity was taken to provide a more detailed response to the noble Lord, Lord Morris of Manchester, when replying to his subsequent Questions of 26 June (Official Report, col. WA 126) concerning the letter from the president of the Pensions Appeal Tribunals and the Ministry of Defence’s reaction to it.
