HC Deb 12 January 1971 vol 809 c37W
Mr. Haselhurst

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what are the numbers of known sufferers from epilepsy in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Alison

A record of total numbers is not maintained, but the report "People with Epilepsy" published for my Department in 1969, suggests that in England and Wales the number may be about 290,000.
