Teenage Pregnancy

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 17 October 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many teenagers gave birth in each constituency in 2006. (157349)

The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician, who has been asked to reply.

Letter from Karen Dunnell, dated 16 October 2007:

As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking how many teenagers gave birth in each constituency in 2006. (157349).

The attached table provides the number of live births to mothers aged less than 20 in each parliamentary constituency in England and Wales, in 2006. Since these figures are for births rather than maternities, a small number of teenage mothers who had multiple births will have been counted more than once. A copy has been placed in the House of Commons Library.
