|Number and rate of UK-born tuberculosis cases (England)|
|Number||Rate per 100,000 population|
1. No data are available for 1995 since this precedes the introduction of ETS and there was no National Tuberculosis Survey (these were carried out at five-yearly intervals prior to the introduction of ETS) in 1995.
2. 2004 data are not available at present.
3. The LFS population estimates which have been used to calculate rates are liable to sampling errors.
4. Entry into the UK within the previous five years will include those who entered the UK during the year in which they were reported as a TB case e.g. for 1998 the data include persons who entered the UK in 1998, 1997, 1996, 1995 and 1994.
1. Health Protection Agency Enhanced Tuberculosis Surveillance (ETS) system
2. Data as at 24 October 2006
Mr. Drew: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment she has made of the risk of contracting bovine tuberculosis from unpasteurised milk. 
Caroline Flint: All dairy herds which supply raw drinking milk are tested annually for bovine tuberculosis (TB). Milk from herds which have lost their officially tuberculosis free (OTF) status can only be sold for human consumption if it is pasteurised. Producers of raw milk cheese or other raw milk products are advised to source their milk from herds which are tested annually for evidence of TB infection. In cases where a herd loses its OTF status the local authority will undertake a risk assessment on any products which were made recently.
The Food Standards Agency considers that public health is adequately protected by these measures.
Mr. Amess: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 16 October 2006, Official Report, column 1020W, on teenage smoking, if she will list the (a) magazines, (b) newspapers and (c) other publications in which her Department placed advertising on the risks of smoking in 2005-06 aimed at teenagers; what assessment she plans to make of the effectiveness of each advertisement; and if she will make a statement. 
Caroline Flint: The following media were used in the Departments 2005-06 campaign targeting young adult smokers (including 16 to 19-year-olds):
Targeting males: FHM, Loaded, Front, Maxim, Fast Car, Zoo, Nuts, Max Power, Kerrang, FourFourTwo, BBC Top Gear, MixMag.
Targeting females: Closer, Heat, More, Now, B, Company, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, New Woman, OK, New, Hello, Glamour
The Sun, The Daily Star, the News of the World, and The Daily Star Sunday
No other print publications were used. However, the campaign also used a number of other media channels, including TV, cinema, local radio, direct mail and washroom panels in bars.
Evaluation of this campaign was of both individual advertisements and the campaign as a whole, through looking at respondents to the advertising via telephone calls to the NHS Smoking Helpline, text responses and the visitors to the campaign websites. We will use these data to inform our campaign planning when targeting this audience in future campaigns.
Mr. Iain Wright: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much was spent on (a) the Tees Review of the reconfiguration of hospital services in the Tees area, (b) the Darzi Review of acute health services in the Tees area and (c) the Independent Reconfiguration Panel review of maternity and paediatric services in Teesside. 
Andy Burnham: Details of costs incurred for both the Tees review of reconfiguration of hospital services in the Tees area and the Darzi review are available from the strategic health authority at:
NHS North East
Newcastle upon Tyne
The annual costs of the independent reconfiguration panel are met by the Department. It is not possible to break down the individual costs of such reviews.
Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what steps her Department is taking to reduce the levels of trans-fats in foods; and if she will make a statement. 
Caroline Flint: The Food Standards Agency (FSA) welcomes and encourages the voluntary initiatives some businesses have undertaken to remove or eliminate the use of hydrogenated vegetable oils (which contain trans fats) in their food products. However, any product reformulation to reduce or remove hydrogenated vegetable oils should not result in a rise in saturated fats. Although dietary intakes of trans fats are well within maximum recommended intakes, saturated fat intakes currently exceed public health recommendations, consequently saturated fat reduction remains the FSA's priority.
Mr. Burrowes: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many children under the age of 15 years were admitted to hospital for alcohol-related problems in the last year for which figures are available, broken down by region. 
Caroline Flint: The information in the table shows the number of children under the age of 15 years who were admitted to hospital for alcohol-related problems in 2004-05 by strategic health authority (SHA). Data are compiled by region.
Total in year admission episodes for 0 to 14-year-olds for all diagnosis codes (F10, K70, T51) in all SHAs = 2612

Mr. Iain Wright: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many of those women who gave birth at the University Hospital of Hartlepool in each of the last five years were aged (a) 14 years and below, (b) 15 to 16, (c) 17 to 19, (d) 20 to 29, (e) 30 to 39 and (f) 40 years and above. 
Mr. Ivan Lewis: The information is available at Trust level only and is shown in the table.
|Count of finished consultant episodes of women who gave birth at the North Tees and Hartlepool national health service trust. NHS hospitals, England 2000-01 to 2004-05|
|Period||Mother's age at delivery||Finished consultant episodes|
Finished consultant episode (FEC)
An FEC is defined as a period of admitted patient care under one consultant within one health care provider. Please note that the figures do not represent the number of patients, as a person may have more than one episode of care within the year.
Mothers age at delivery.
This field contains the mothers age in whole years on the date of delivery. It is calculated from the mothers date of birth and the first babys date of birth.
2 = Delivery Episode
5 = Other delivery event
Figures have not been adjusted for shortfalls in data (i.e., the data are ungrossed)
Hospital Episode Statistics are compiled from data sent by over 300 NHS Trusts and Primary Care Trusts in England. The Health and Social Care Information Centre liaises closely with these organisations to encourage submission of complete and valid data and seeks to minimise inaccuracies and the effect of missing and invalid data via HES processes. While this brings about improvement over time, some shortcomings remain.

For year 2001-02 it was not possible to break down the data by age of mother because it is missing for this particular Trust.
