HC Deb 18 November 1926 vol 199 c1984W

asked the Minister of Health what was the rate of infant mortality per 1,000 births during the first three-quarters of the present year, or if he has not yet received those figures, then the figures for the first half-year, in Wigton, Cumberland; and the like figures for the other urban districts in Cumberland and for Carlisle?


For Carlisle the provisional infantile mortality rate (deaths under one year of age per 1,000 live births) for the first three quarters of 1926 is 80. No other figures are at present available for that period. Figures for the first half-year will, however, shortly be forthcoming for all the urban districts in question, and I will send them to my hon. Friend as soon as they are available.
