To ask the Secretary of State for Wales (1) pursuant to his answer of 29 November, Official Report, column 259, whether he will provide comparable figures on intensive care baby cots for 1983–84 and 1979–80;(2) pursuant to his answer of 7 December,

Official Report, column 358, whether he will provide comparable figures on intensive care baby cots for 1979–80 and for the latest available year.

The answer of 29 November, Official Report column 259, was based on information derived from a one-off enquiry undertaken to inform the advisory group on perinatal intensive care services in Wales. As a consequence comparable figures for earlier years are not available. The more general quarterly bed-use inquiry provides comparable statistics relating to special care baby cots for the years requested, and these are shown in the table:
