The request was partially successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

In response to Rebecca Long-Bailey's question on 9th June, Mark Lancaster, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Defence, admitted that a review of archived policy documents indicates that the MoD was aware of the possible psychotic side-effects of Lariam (Mefloquine) "from at least 1997". Under the Freedom of Information Act, I request sight of the policy documents Mr Lancaster refers to.

Yours faithfully,

Bridget Coldwell
