§ Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Pensions if he will inquire into the case of Mr. G. H. Roach, of 44, Tower Hamlets Road, Forest Gate, who on 3rd July received from the local area office, M.R.A.O. 15A, advising consultation with the National Health Insurance doctor; whether he is aware that, although the doctor concerned certified that his treatment of the pensioner necessitated absence from work, the local pensions office stated such evidence cannot be accepted as sufficient to warrant placing the man on treatment allowances; end whether such practice is with his consent?
I am having inquiry made into the facts of this case and will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
