Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) rescinds provisions of its Adjudication Procedures Manual, M21– 1 (Manual M21–1) that were found by the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (Veterans Court) not to have been properly rescinded. DATES: This rescission is effective April 15, 2008. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 27, 2007, we proposed to rescind certain provisions of our Manual M21–1. 72 FR 66218. The notice was necessitated by the opinion rendered by the Veterans Court in Haas v. Nicholson, 20 Vet. App. 257 (2006). Although VA’s appeal of that decision has been submitted to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (Federal Circuit), that court has not yet issued a decision in the case. The comment period has ended, and we now rescind the provisions. We received more than 75 comments, most of which were very similar and can be addressed in three categories: (1) Citation to scientific evidence, in particular a 2002 study performed for Australia’s Queensland Health Scientific Services by their National Research Center for Environmental Toxicology, titled, Examination of the Potential Exposure of Royal Australian Navy Personnel to Polychlorinated Dibenzodioxins and Polychlorinated E:\FR\FM\15APN1.SGM 15APN1
