§ Mr. John Morris
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many cases appeal tribunals dealing with sickness benefit appeals in South Wales, and in the Port Talbot travel-to-work area, will be able to deal with in the next six weeks, and in the next three months, respectively.
§ Mr. Prentice
[pursuant to his reply, 21 February 1980, c. 322–3]: Local appeal tribunals constituted under part III of the Social Security Act 1975 deal with all types of appeals and questions arising under that Act. The number of cases dealt with over a period depends on the number of sittings arranged and this will vary according to the volume of appeals received in the individual tribunal areas.
