HC Deb 04 December 1991 vol 200 c156W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will publish the latest available figures showing the total number of recorded cases of juvenile macular degeneration in England.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

The causes of blindness and partial sight in children registered as blind or partially sighted with their local authorities between April 1987 and March 1990 were published in May 1991 in statistical bulletin 3(5)91, a copy of which is available in the Library. Juvenile macular degeneration is not separately identified.
