HC Deb 18 July 2001 vol 372 cc301-2W
Andrew George

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many and what proportion of appeals against a decision to withdraw a disability or carer's benefit following a departmental medical examination have been successful in each of the last five years. [4355]

Maria Eagle

Information is not available in the form requested. Available statistics on the outcomes of appeals do not show where the decision appealed against was made following a medical examination, or distinguish between appeals against withdrawal of an existing award of benefit and appeals against disallowance of a new claim.
