Ms Primarolo

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many mental hospitals there were in each region and nationally in each of the last 15 years.

Mr. Bowis

The available information is shown in the table.

Mr. Sackville

The expert Advisory Committee on the Toxicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment has reviewed the toxicology of dioxins on a number of occasions. It has set a tolerable daily intake (TDI) for dioxins of 10 picograms per kilogram body weight per day. Provided that individual intakes of dioxins do not exceed this level no risk to health is anticipated.
