HC Deb 11 July 1939 vol 349 c2078W
Mr. Trevor Cox

asked the Minister of Health whether he will give the figures for maternal mortality for the division of Stalybridge and Hyde for the last three years?

Mr. Elliot

The figures are as follow:

Deaths per 1,000 total births (live and still).
1936 2.86(3 deaths)
1937 3.84(4 deaths)
1938 5.52 (6 deaths)

These rates relate to the aggregate of administrative areas most nearly corresponding with the area of the Parliamentary division.
