To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many unemployment benefit (Med 3) forms have been reported lost in the last year; and what investigations have been carried out by his Department into missing unemployment benefit (Med 3) forms. [116463]

We are not aware of any major problem with lost or missing Med 3 medical statements. We do not record how many Med 3 medical statements are reported lost each year and we have not carried out any investigations into this matter. If the hon. Gentleman has a specific case in mind I will look into it if he writes to me with specific details.
