§ Ms. Harman
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the number of (a) low and (b) very low birth weight babies for each district health authority for each of the last six years.
§ Mrs. Currie
The information requested can be provided only at disproportionate cost. The recent OPCS Monitor series DH3 87/2, "Infant and Perinatal Mortality 1985: DHAs" gives the percentage of total births weighing less than 2,500 grams for each district health authority for 1985. A copy is in the Library.
