§ Mr. McFall
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, further to paragraph 5, page 57 of the "Statement on the Defence Estimates", what procedures are in place to deal with complaints of harassment of homosexuals within the armed forces.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
All complaints of harassment of any nature would be dealt with under normal administrative or disciplinary procedures and, if substantiated, appropriate action would be taken against the offender. Homosexual behaviour is itself an offence under service law.
