Hi all, New to this, don't know whether this is the correct place for this, so feel free to move it if necessary. Noticed this in the news this morning...

The independent inquiry into Gulf War illnesses headed by the former law lord, Lord Lloyd of Berwick, will deliver its final report today.

The investigation was set up at the request of Labour peer Lord Morris of Manchester, the parliamentary adviser to the Royal British Legion, after the Ministry of Defence refused an official inquiry.

Its findings are expected to put further pressure on the MoD to accept the claims of the 6,000 veterans suffering from ill health they say is linked to the 1991 conflict.

Although the MoD and the Department of Health both refused to allow serving military personnel and officials to appear before the inquiry, they did submit written documentation.

Lord Lloyd was also able to take evidence from retired personnel, including the commander of British forces in the Gulf, General Sir Peter de la Billiere, leading scientific experts as well as some 35 veterans or their families.

The MoD sought to pre-empt the inquiry's findings with its own report earlier this month in which it accepted it had not been open about the vaccinations it had given to troops in case of possible chemical or biological attack.

However it continued to deny the existence of any "Gulf War Syndrome".

Veterans have suffered from a range of health problems including cancers, motor neurone disease, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, traumatic stress and aching joints.

Their case was boosted by the publication last week of a report by the US Veterans Department in Washington which said there was a "probable link" between illnesses suffered by American veterans and exposure to toxins, including nerve gases such as sarin.


It is from Skynews, and I would like to concentrate your attention on the lines :
"The MoD sought to pre-empt the inquiry's findings with its own report earlier this month in which it accepted it had not been open about the vaccinations it had given to troops in case of possible chemical or biological attack.

What the hell...???? The MOD are not being open about what was in the vaccinations....anyone else think this stinks of a cover-up? Why would they say this and then deny that GWS exists....why would they do this when there is ample proof that it does exist.....I'll never understand military logic!!
