HC Deb 28 July 1927 vol 209 c1491W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that, on the 20th July, 1927, a regional medical officer of the north-eastern division certified an insured man, Mr. John Wilson, of 6, Thomas Street, Sunderland, as having had a right-sided hemiplegia about six months ago, and that he was fit for some form of light work, at any rate that applicable to a one-armed man, and in his opinion was not on that date incapable of work; and whether, having regard to the fact that Wilson is 54 years of age, has been continuously insured since 1912, and has not made a previous claim for sickness or disablement benefit, and in view of paragraphs (b) and (c) of Sub-section (1) of Section 10 of the National Health Insurance Act, 1924, he will inquire into this case?


I will look into the case referred to by the hon. Member, and will communicate with him about it.
