HC Deb 30 October 1990 vol 178 c481W
Mr. Clay

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will place in the Library a copy of the September/October 1990 guidance note for adjudication officers in Department of Social Security offices dealing with claims arising under regulation 13 of the Social Security (1.1 and Diseases) Miscellaneous Provisions Regulations 1986 for backdating of claims in respect of the prescribed industrial disease vibration white finger.

Mr. Scott

Guidance for adjudication officers is a matter for the chief adjudication officer, although I understand that no such central guidance was issued in September-October 1990.
