HC Deb 17 November 1911 vol 31 cc788-9W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in the event of a difference of opinion between medical men as to the fitness or otherwise of a Civil servant for acceptance, under the provisions of the Superannuation Act of 1909, it is usual for the Treasury to appoint a medical referee, but the expense to be borne by the officer concerned; and, if so, should not both parties involved, namely, the Treasury and the Civil servant directly concerned, be supplied with a copy of the award of the medical arbitrator?


In certain cases where there has been such a difference of opinion the Treasury have allowed a further examination at the expense of the candidate; but they cannot agree to supply candidates with copies of the Reports made to the Department by the examiners.
