HC Deb 16 May 1994 vol 243 c320W
Mr. Hinchliffe

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what proposals she has to introduce a system to identify death through neglect in child fatality cases.

Mr. Bowis

Information on cause of death is available from the existing system of death registration, using the international classification of diseases, which already identifies neglect under the following categories; criminal neglect, abandonment or neglect of helpless persons, lack of food or water, exposure and destitution.
