HC Deb 12 February 1997 vol 290 cc245-6W
Mr. Martyn Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many people are currently being treated for asthma in(a) each county and (b) Wales; and if he will make a statement. [14888]

Mr. Gwilym Jones

Information on the number of people treated for asthma in Wales is not available centrally. However, a health survey of adults was carried out in Wales during 1995 and one of the questions asked was "Do you have any of these chest troubles or breathing difficulties now?"—asthma was one of the conditions included. The results, by health authority, were published in chapter 1 of "Welsh Health Survey 1995", a copy of which is in the Library of the House.
