HC Deb 02 February 1999 vol 324 c577W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he will publish the figures for the incidence of cigarette smoking among adults in 1998. [67399]

Ms Jowell

The Office for National Statistics plans to publish headline results from the 1998–99 General Household Survey (GHS) late this year. These will include figures for the prevalence of cigarette smoking among adults aged 16 and over in Great Britain.

It is also planned that the main report for the 1998–99 GHS will be published in February 2000, which will include more detailed analyses.
