Mr. Quentin Davies

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many kidney dialysers are(a) currently installed in England and Wales; how many are owned (a) by the private sector and (b) by the National Health Service; of the latter, how many were (i) purchased by health authorities and (ii) provided by private gift or public subscription; and if he will make available any information at his disposal on the number of such machines installed in other western countries, including the United States, Japan, Sweden, France and the Federal Republic of Germany.

Mr. Freeman

I regret that the information is not collected centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
