Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned has been awarded disability allowance (DA) with effect from 29 August 2018.  A letter issued to this gentleman informing him of this on 5 December 2018.

Arrears of payment due have been calculated and issued to the person concerned on 15 March 2019.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
