To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many people in the Warrington, North constituency are provided with continence services by the local health authority; and what budget has been allocated by the authority to continence care for each year from 1990–91. [40223]

Mr. Milburn

The information requested is not held centrally. However, Warrington Community Health Care National Health Service Trust has supplied the details which are given in the tables. The trust is able to supply data from 1994/95 onwards, but the information requested is not available prior to this date. Warrington Community Health Care NHS Trust does not collect data by ward, and therefore, the information supplied concerns the whole of Warrington.
