§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will publish a table showing the absolute number, and the number per 1,000 population, of the incidence of linitis plastica in the Gwynedd and Clwyd areas in each of the past five years; and how these compare with the rate of incidence for Wales and for the United Kingdom at the latest available time.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
Cases with the histological sub-grouping linitis plastica were not distinguished separately until 1979. Provisional data for Wales for 1979 and 1980 show no cases in this category. Figures for the United Kingdom are not yet available.
