asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on the new method of administering social security commissioners' decisions and give the reasons why claimants' representatives are not being allowed to see any unreported decisions.

The administration of commissioners' decisions is a matter for the chief commissioner and new arrangements were set out in a practice direction issued on 5 October 1982. I have placed a copy in the Library. Claimants and their representatives receive copies of ny commissioner's decision in which they are involved.
