HC Deb 14 December 1989 vol 163 c802W
Mr. Battle

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security whether there are any plans to update the guidance given in the "Handbook for Delegated Medical Practitioners" as it relates to myalgic encephalomyelitis.

Mr. Scott

I understand that there are no plans to update the section of the handbook for delegated medical practitioners relating to myalgic encephalomyelitis. This handbook is prepared by the Attendance Allowance Board which is independent of the Department and Ministers.
