HC Deb 03 April 1995 vol 257 cc970-1W
Mr. Llwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many Welsh school children had serious dental problems in each year since 1991; and if he will make a statement. [16778]

Mr. Richards

The information requested is not available centrally. However, two publications concerning, in part, child dental health in Wales have recently been issued by Office of Population Censuses and Surveys:

  1. (i) The National Diet and Nutrition Survey: Children aged one-and -half to four-and-half years. ISBN 0–11–691612–5
  2. (ii) Children's Dental Health in the United Kingdom 1993. ISBN 0–11–691607–9

In addition, directors of dental public health produce annual reports which include epidemiological data relating to the dental health of children in their districts. These are available from district health authorities.
