Default RUST issues HELP!

Hi,

1996 Landrover Discovery 1
TDI Diesel Manual

Found a bunch of rust on the front passenger floor pan - not too bad and I can repair easy enough.
However I found a big rust hole on the front passenger side vertical beam in the bottom corner of the door frame near where the hinge is and i'm just wondering if this beam section is Structural for Warrent of Fitness purposes and is it Repairable.
Any help is appreciated. Please see photos below,

remove the rocker panel plastic - then youll see the full extent.
there are companies in the uk that make the panels for replacement
just start googling
mean while get POR-15 and coat it so it slows it down

YRM in UK supplies components for these purposes.

https://yrmit.co.uk/

Any of the A, B, C, D pillars are structural yes. However given you have a Tdi I couldn't say if MOT would be an issue.
