HC Deb 14 July 1993 vol 228 c528W
Ms Primarolo

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many children have been defined as being in need under the Children Act 1989 in each year since the Act was passed; and how many have had services provided for them.

Mr. Bowis

This information is not available centrally. Information is collected on the total number of children receiving certain specific services; children in need will be included in these totals, but are not identified separately.
