asked Her Majesty's Government:Whether they will publish details of the School Medical Service in each of the four health and social services board areas in Northern Ireland and for each quarter since December 1977, for the following:—

  • (a) the number of children attending schools;
  • (b) the number of routine medical inspections;
  • (c) the number of medical reexaminations; and
  • (d) the number of nurses employed solely in the School Health Service.
  • This information is only available on an annual basis and is contained in the annual reports of the respective health and social services boards. Since a good deal of statistical information is involved I would refer the noble Lord to the published annual reports of the boards, which are available in the Library.
