HC Deb 07 November 1972 vol 845 cc137-8W
Mr. Clinton Davis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many inquests have been held consequent upon the death of children resident at the children's home known as The Beeches, Ixworth, Suffolk during the last six years; and if he will publish full details in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Mr. Lane

As far as can be ascertained, two; one in 1966 on a boy aged 4 and one in 1972 on a girl aged 6. The causes of death were, respectively, asphyxia caused by regurgitation of the stomach contents due to gross congenital brain abnormality, and bronchopneumonia and hypothermia.
