Lord Freud misrepresentation

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2063512/Dont-let-GPs-sign-long-term-sick-notes-Ministers-told-independent-panel-rule-ill-sick-work.html


In his Radio4 interview 19/11/11, Lord Freud relied on 2 main propositions:


1)  A survey of GPs where a high proportion admitted to provide "fit-notes" sanctioning time off work when it was not in fact necessary.


2) "Over half the people who have a WCA do not pass it.  Totally at odds with stats available.


Needs investigating and correcting.
