HC Deb 27 April 1982 vol 22 c248W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what was the percentage and number of infants born with congenital malformations for the past five years; how many stillbirths, first week, first month and first year deaths of these infants there were; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

There is no link between the voluntary system of notifying congenital malformations and the system of death registration so that it is not possible to state with accuracy the number of congenitally malformed infants who died at any particular age. For this reason the information given in the following table should be treated with caution.

(3) what is the number and percentage of investments of the Welsh Development Agency which are less than £20,000, less than £50,000, less than £75,000, less than £100,000 and more than £100,000, respectively.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

I have asked the Welsh Development Agency to provide the information to the hon. Member.
