On the medical assessors, I have asked about this in parliamentary questions on a number of occasions. It seems it is not just a question of recruiting additional medical assessors. There may also be a problem of retention. General practitioners, GPs, are the nominated people around the country. We may need to ask if there is an issue with retaining as well as recruiting medical assessors. It is causing delays and they in turn cause costly administrative delays. That is an issue that we might write to the Department about.
