Information discounted at MR stage


I helped someone with a PIP MR, and am now preparing an appeal.

He uses pads to aid him with incontinence. He did not disclose this at his medical, but we mentioned it in the reconsideration letter. In the MR the decision maker staes ’ Whilst you state that you suffer with urinary and faecal incontinence this was not reported at assessment so cannot be considered.’

Any opinions on the validity of this statement?
