The Equalities Act 2010 makes it unlawful for an employer to ask any job applicant about their health or disability unless the applicant has been offered a job. However the Act does not then prevent the employer asking questions to determine whether a successful applicant would be eligible for job related benefits or would need reasonable adjustments to enable them to do the job.
