Lord Morris of Manchester asked Her Majesty's Government:

What consideration they have given to the memorandum on Access to Health Services for Military Veterans sent by Christopher Long, chief executive of the Hull Teaching Primary Care Trust, to all general practitioners and physicians in its area on 8 October [press release]; and whether they will be commending his approach for use more widely among primary care trusts.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health (Lord Darzi of Denham): The Government welcome the recognition by Hull Teaching Primary Care Trust of the service given to their country by the Armed Forces. The Government announced on 23 November the expansion of National Health Service priority treatment to all veterans for injuries and ill health sustained as a result of active service.
