HC Deb 02 August 1923 vol 167 cc1758-9W

asked the Minister of Health the percentage of deaths of women on confinement in this country for each of the last 10 years and for periods of 10 years prior; and how those figures compare with records in other countries?


Figures for England and Wales in regard to deaths of women assigned to pregnancy or childbirth for the last 10 years and for decennia from 1861 to 1910 are given in the following Table, together with such figures as are available in regard to other countries:

in respect of institutional treatment and the cost of collecting the same, and the amount which was found to be irrecoverable or cancelled; and also the number of people who are concerned with these charges and their collection?


I am obtaining this information, and will send it to the hon. Member.
