Mentally Ill: Cannabis

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 21 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer to my friend the hon. Member for South Cambridgeshire (Mr. Lansley), of 6 June 2007, Official Report, column 583W, on mentally ill: cannabis, how many hospital admissions on mental health grounds resulting from the use of cannabis there were in each (a) strategic health authority and (b) primary care trust area in each year since 1997. (142416)

Data showing the number of hospital admissions on mental health grounds resulting from the use of cannabis in each strategic health authority and primary care trust in each year since 1997 have been placed in the Library. The data show admissions by all consultant specialities, including admissions by consultants registered under mental illness specialities only.
