RESERVED JUDGMENT OF JUDGE M J BEATTIE

[1] The issue in this appeal is whether the respondent was correct, by its decision of 31 May 1999, to determine that the appellant had a capacity for work within the meaning of s.51(2) of the Act.

[2] The points taken by counsel for the appellant in support of the appeal relate to the medical assessment carried out by Dr Talwar, the respondent's duly appointed Medical Assessor, so that matters to be considered in this appeal were intended to be confined to matters arising from Dr Talwar's medical assessment.
