§ 51. Mr. Terry Davis
asked the Secretary of Stale for Social Services what is his latest estimate of the numbers of people who died as a result of the cold weather in January and February.
§ Mr. Whitney
It is not possible to make an accurate assessment of the number of deaths due solely or primarily to this period of cold weather. I am, however, studying the results of the study of hypothermia statistics which I announced in my reply to the hon. Member for Holborn and St. Pancras (Mr. Dobson) on 19 December 1985 at column321.
