HC Deb 01 March 1994 vol 238 c638W
Mr. Boyes

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will produce a table showing the deaths by fire of(a) infants, (b) adolescents, (c) adults and (d) the elderly for the latest 20 years.

Mr. Charles Wardle

The latest published statistics of the number of fire-related deaths by age from fires attended by local authority fire brigades in the United Kingdom are shown in table 23 of the annual Home Office report, "Fire Statistics United Kingdom 1991", a copy of which is in the Library. I will reply as soon as possible with information for earlier years.
