HC Deb 05 December 1985 vol 88 c338W
Mr. Colin Shepherd

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will set out in the Official Report a table showing how many recipients of long-term sickness benefit residing in Herefordshire were, in each of the years 1983–84, 1984–85 and 1985 to date, referred to the regional medical service for independent medical examinations; how many of these were declared fit for work in their usual occupations; how many were delcared fit for limited work in alternative and unspecified occupations; and how these figures compare with the other social security divisions in the county of Hereford and Worcester.

Mr. Major

I regret that the information is available only at disproportionate cost.
