43. Mr. Idwal Jones
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance how many appeals were submitted to the Medical Appeal Tribunal under the National Insurance (Industrial Injuries) Acts against the decision of the medical boards in Denbighshire during the twelve months ending at the latest convenient date; in how many cases the results of the appeals were advantageous and disadvantageous, respectively, to the appellants; and in how many cases the findings of the medical board were upheld.12W
§ Mr. Braine
Records are not kept in a form which enables this information to be given for particular counties. In Wales as a whole, during the twelve months ended 30th September, 1960, 1,518 appeals by claimants were dealt with by the Medical Appeal Tribunal, of which 577 resulted in a decision favourable to the claimant. In 941 cases the medical board's decision was upheld or a less favourable assessment was substituted.
