I am advised by my Department that an application for a Free Travel Companion Pass from the person in question, has been reviewed again by a Deciding Officer.  The person is still not eligible for the Free Travel Companion Pass.  As part of this review, the Deputy Chief Medical Advisor re-assessed all the medical evidence available.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
