The information requested is available in the Ministry of Defence published paper entitled: “Background to the use of Medical Countermeasures to protect British Forces during the Gulf War (Operation Granby)”. This paper discussed the background to the use of medical countermeasures not only in terms of the scientific issues involved, but also of procurement and other matters which were raised by Gulf veterans.

The paper is available on the MOD website at:
