• 4.a.10. Are aged persons included in 'people with an illness or disability' for the purposes of section 38-45?

    Non-interpretative – straight application of the law.

    It is considered that medical aids or appliances listed in Schedule 3 that may be acquired by aged persons for use in the event that an illness or disability befell them (for example ‘medical alert device') willsatisfy the requirement that the medical aid or appliance be ‘specifically designed for people with an illness or disability’.
