Health

Suicide Prevention Strategy

The following is an extract from the Written Ministerial Statement presented by the Minister of State, Department of Health, the hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb), on 17 January 2014.

...Sadly, since 2007 we have seen signs that the suicide rate has risen in England, as it has in many countries. There were 4,524 suicides in 2012.

[Official Report, 17 January 2014, Vol. 573, c. 39WS.]

Letter of correction from Norman Lamb:

An error has been identified in the Written Ministerial Statement on Suicide Prevention Strategy issued on 17 January 2014.

The paragraph should have read:

...Sadly, since 2007 we have seen signs that the suicide rate has risen in England, as it has in many countries. There were 4,513 suicides in 2012.

[Official Report, 24 January 2014, Vol. 574, c. 362W.]

Letter of correction from Stephen Hammond:

An error has been identified in the written answer given to the hon. Member for Nottingham South (Lilian Greenwood) on 24 January 2014.

The full answer given was as follows: (184297)

In total 12 civil servants have been re-employed by either Department for Transport central or one of its Agencies having been made voluntarily redundant or retired by the same organisation since May 2010. This is a very small percentage (less than 1%) of external recruitment over that period.

The correct answer should have been:

In total 10 civil servants have been re-employed by either Department for Transport central or one of its Agencies having been made voluntarily redundant or retired by the same organisation since May 2010. This is a very small percentage (less than 1%) of external recruitment over that period.
