§ 54. Mr. Rost
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the irregular attendance of Mrs. Joan Mary Sheldon, of 129, High Street, Chellaston, Derby, on which grounds her employment as an established officer of the Civil Service was terminated, was certificated sick leave; and why she was not retired on medical grounds.
§ Mr. Dean
Mrs. Sheldon's irregular attendance was almost wholly covered by medical certificates. She was not retired on medical grounds because the Medical Adviser of the Civil Service Department was not satisfied that Mrs. Sheldon wasincapable from infirmity of mind and body to discharging the dutiesof her situation and that that infirmity was likely to be permanent. This is the requirement for the issue of a medical certificate under the Superannuation Act, 1965.
