§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the precise nature of the action which his 95W Department is taking to ensure that benefits available to service men as a result of the Falklands war are well known.
§ Mr. Stanley
As far as benefits for which my Department is responsible are concerned, awards under the armed forces pension scheme are made as a matter of course to those service men who are eligible. No publicity is considered necessary, and we have no reason to think that awards have not been made to every eligible service man.
