asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when she expects to inform Mr. H. B. Jenner-Patson of the result of his appeals to the National Insurance Commissioner heard on 3rd January 1975, reference C.S. 129/74 and C.S. 130/74.
Decisions on appeals to the National Insurance Commissioner are notified direct to the appellant by the commissioner. The commissioner is the highest of the independent national insurance adjudicating authorities and wholly determines the timing of his decisions. But I shall, of course, write to the hon. and learned Member, as I have undertaken to do, once the commissioner's decision has been given in this case.
