HC Deb 09 February 1999 vol 325 c166W
Mr. Dawson

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what proportion of children aged under two years in local authority care were born to teenage mothers. [69892]

Mr. Hutton

The information requested is not available centrally. Although the Department collects statistical information on the care histories of children who are looked after by local authorities in England, this does not include information about the children's parents.
