To ask the Secretary of State for Health what information about occupancy rates within different types of bed, defined as acute, geriatric and mentally ill, the Department collects; and what has been the change in occupancy rate over the past five years; and if he will make a statement on occupancy rates of over 100 per cent.

Information on bed occupancy rates is not collected centrally. Information on bed days—completed episodes by clinical speciality in national health service hospitals in England is published each year in "Hospital Episode Statistics, Volume 1". Information for the years 1988–89 to 1993–94 are available in the Library.
