Rosie Cooper: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer in how many deaths in (a) England and (b) West Lancashire (i) consumption of alcohol and (ii) smoking was the main cause in the last year for which figures are available. 
The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking in how many deaths in (a) England and (b) West Lancashire (i) consumption of alcohol and (ii) smoking was the main cause in the last year for which figures are available.

The most recently available information for mortality is deaths registered in 2004. The table below shows numbers of deaths among residents of England and West Lancashire local authority, where the underlying cause of death indicated a condition directly related to alcohol use in 2004.
Information is not recorded on the death certificate on smoking. Estimates can however be made of the number of deaths attributable to smoking, by making use of information on the contribution of smoking to specific conditions recorded at death. The most recent estimates for England were published by the Health Development Agency in 2004l. This report estimated that between 1998 and 2002 an annual average of 86,500 deaths were caused by smoking in England.
Estimates were not published at parliamentary constituency or local authority level. However maps based on the estimated percentage of all deaths from causes attributable to smoking, at ages 35 and over, were published for Primary Care Trusts (PCTs). For West Lancashire it was estimated that 32 per cent. of all deaths of those aged 35 and over were attributable to smoking 2 . West Lancashire PCT is coterminous with West Lancashire local authority.
