§ Mr. R. RICHARDSON
asked the Minister of Pensions whether any order has been issued prohibiting treatment by specialists in the case of men suffering from neurasthenia and assessed at 20 per cent. or under; and, if so, do the medical advisers of the Ministry consider that treatment is unnecessary in these cases?
§ Major TRYON
The answer is in the negative. The provision of treatment is undertaken by my Department in all cases of neurasthenia in which a Neurological Medical Officer of the Ministry considers it to be necessary.
