§ Colonel DAY
asked the Minister of Pensions if he is aware that Mr. T. Kelleher, of 28, Steedman Street, Southwark, S.E.17, Ministry reference No. 11/M/248,569, certified for home 1047W treatment in respect of the disability myalgia, is unable to secure treatment from his panel doctor, who certifies Kelleher as unable to follow his employment in consequence of the degree of his disability; and will he take such action as will result in adequate treatment and allowance being afforded in this case?
§ Major TRYON
I find that Mr. T. Kelleher has been quite recently examined on more than one occasion by medical officers of the Ministry, but I am advised that no course of treatment which would incapacitate the man from work is called for. I do not know what evidence the hon. Member has for the statement that Mr. Kelleher is unable to secure treatment from his panel doctor, who is, on the contrary, as I am informed, prepared to give any treatment that is necessary; but I would point out that in any case this is a matter for the insurance committee.
