HC Deb 16 July 1918 vol 108 c900W

asked the Minister of National Service whether, in the case of a man sent by an Appeal Tribunal to the medical assessors for re-examination, it is permissible for the National Service Medical Board by which he had been previously examined, or for the local National Service representative, to furnish any report on his case, or any information with regard to it, to the assessors previous to the re-examination?


I have been asked to answer this question. It is not the practice for such reports to be made. If a report were received, the medical assessors would give it their consideration; but it is for them to grade the man according to their own judgment. The medical history sheet of a man's examination by the National Service Medical Board and other relevant documents are, of course, received by the medical assessors before the man is examined by them.
