Elderly Irish Men

Volume 456: debated on Friday 2 February 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment she has made of the health needs of elderly Irish males living in England. (118201)

The Department has made no specific assessment of the health needs of elderly Irish males living in the United Kingdom. The most extensive survey on the health of minority ethnic groups ever carried out in England was published in April 2006. The 2004 “Health Survey for England” interviewed over 6,000 adults from black and minority ethnic communities including Irish communities. The report is available in the Library.
