Gulf War Syndrome

Volume 684: debated on Monday 24 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What procedures Gulf War veterans must comply with to have the umbrella term Gulf War syndrome applied to recognised medical conditions for which they are already receiving an award and which are attributable to service during the 1990-91 Gulf War.[HL6888]

If a veteranhas recognised medical conditions accepted as attributable to or aggravated by service in connection with the 1990-91 Gulf War, they should write to the Veterans’ Agency requesting a review of whether the application of the umbrella term Gulf War syndrome would be appropriate. Thereafter a claim form may be required depending on the circumstances of the case.
