asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what have been the number of deaths from (a) drowning, (b) road accidents and (c) horse riding in each of the last 10 years in England and Wales.

The information is shown in the table.(2) if he will examine the educational documentation available for the training of incontinence advisers; arid if he will make a statement.

It is for health authorities to determine the training requirements of nurses as incontinence advisers. I understand that the English National Board for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting, the statutory body responsible for the provision of the education and training of nurses, provides the material for a course on the promotion of continence and the management of incontinence.
