In response to Professor Hooper's correspondence with the Department of Works and Pensions regarding their classification of ME/CFS and their failure to address the issues, the Countess of Mar contacted Lord Freud, Minister for Welfare Reform.

The Countess of Mar has received a reply which can be seen at the first link below.

This significant letter states: “... I can be clear that the DWP does not classify CFS/ME as a mental health disorder”. Lord Freud also unreservedly apologised to Professor Hooper: “... let me apologise unreservedly for the handling of Professor Hooper’s correspondence”.
