To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many children under the age of 16 years were diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection in each of the last five years, broken down by (a) region and (b) type of infection. (195450)

I have been asked to reply.

Information on the number of diagnoses of the five main sexually transmitted infections (gonorrhoea, chlamydia, syphilis, genital warts and anogenital herpes) in under 16-year-olds in the last five years by strategic health authority has been placed in the Library.
