HC Deb 28 May 1971 vol 818 cc286-7W
Mr. Elystan Morgan

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the death rate in Cardiganshire per 1,000 population; and how this compares with the average for the United Kingdom.

Mr. Peter Thomas

The crude figure for 1969 is 15.0 but when adjustment is made for age distribution the corrected death rate for Cardiganshire becomes 11.85. The average death rate for the United Kingdom is 11.9.
