§ 39. Mr. D. E. Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations his Department has received about the work of pneumoconiosis medical panels.
§ Mr. Orme
In the main, such representations have been about individual cases. The Industrial Injuries Advisory Council in its report on pneumoconiosis and byssinosis 1973 (Cmnd. 5443, paragraph 122) expressed itself as generally satisfied with the arrangements affecting the work of the panels, and as being of the opinion that the panels were carrying out a difficult and exacting task sympathetically and efficiently.
