Re: Decision of the Repatriation Medical Authority not to make Statements of Principles for Gulf War Syndrome

 

Request for Review Declaration No. 32

 

In relation to the decision of the Repatriation Medical Authority (RMA) not to make Statements of Principles for Gulf War Syndrome the Council under s.196W(5)(b) of the VEA the Council DECLARES that it is not satisfied on the balance of probabilities that Gulf War Syndrome is a particular kind of injury or disease within the meaning of the VEA and accordingly the sound medical-scientific evidence available to the RMA is insufficient to justify the making of Statements of Principles in respect of Gulf War Syndrome.
