To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many children under the age of 16 years were seen for assessment of treatment by child and adolescent psychiatric services in 1986–87 and 1987–88; how many of these children were severely or profoundly deaf; what proportion used sign language; and what proportion used spoken language as their main method of communication.
