§ Captain Kerby
asked the Minister of Health if he will give statistics regarding the incidence, consequent on the increase of anti-biotic-resistant infections, of staphylococcus deaths in the last 12 months in National Health Service hospitals in England and Wales and in West Sussex; and what steps he is taking to combat this.
§ Mr. Braine
I regret that the information is not available. All hospitals have recently been advised on control of staphylococcal infections and on the related matters of laundry arrangements and central sterile supply.
