HC Deb 14 December 1948 vol 459 c128W
112. Mr. Mikardo

asked the Minister of Labour why, in the case of war disability pensioners who desire to register under the Disabled Persons (Employment) Act, medical evidence of their condition is not obtained from their Ministry of Pensions records instead of subjecting them to a further medical examination.

Mr. Isaacs

Where the medical evidence from a disability pension book or other Ministry of Pensions document is sufficient for the purpose of registration it is accepted; medical examination is required only when this is not sufficient for the purpose or if further medical particulars are required to ascertain the most suitable form of employment.
