Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the rate of infant mortality in Kidsgrove urban district in the two most recent years for which figures are available.

Mr. Alison

The provisional number of deaths of infants under one year of age in the Kidsgrove urban district in 1972 was five, the same number as in 1971. These represent rates per 1,000 live births (infant mortality rate) of 13 (provisional) and 12, respectively.
