Volume 470: debated on Thursday 24 January 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many deaths there were which mentioned diabetes on the death certificate in each of the last 10 years, broken down by (a) age cohort and (b) primary care trust area; and if he will make a statement. (180519)

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

Letter from Colin Mowl, dated 23 January 2008:

The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent question asking how many deaths there were which mentioned diabetes on the death certificate in each of the last 10 years, broken down by (a) age cohort and (b) primary care trust area. I am replying in her absence. (180519)

The tables, which have been placed in the House of Commons Library, provide the number of deaths where diabetes was mentioned on the death certificate, either as the underlying cause or as a contributing factor, in (a) England by five-year age group, and (b) each primary care organisation in England, from 1997 to 2006 (the latest year available).
