HC Deb 08 January 2001 vol 360 c416W
35. Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what review his Department has conducted of deaths in prison during the last 12 months. [142678]

Mr. Boateng

Sadly, the number of self-inflicted deaths in prison in England and Wales has risen in recent years, to 91 in 1999. The figure for 2000 is 82, representing a small but welcome reduction.
