DDT on Christmas Island

We're waiting for arthur boyd to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

DDT was sprayed from a light aircraft to combat infestation from flies and mosquitos due to the insanitary conditions in work and living conditions, during the British Nuclear Tests.
DDT was later banned worldwide under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants--as it was highly dangerous to human beings.

Please advise :-
1. The number of participants who were later awarded a War Pension for DDT poisoning and-
2 . The numbers from each of the three services individually.

Yours faithfully,

arthur boyd
