HC Deb 05 November 1986 vol 103 c454W
Mr. Gareth Wardell

asked the Secretary of State for Wales, if he will publish in the Official Report for each health authority the number of persons receiving treatment for acquired immune deficiency syndrome for each of the past five years.

Mr. Mark Robinson

In Wales, nine individuals have so far been diagnosed as having AIDS, of whom seven have died. So as not to compromise medical confidentiality, it is not our Department's practice to state where individual patients are being treated.
