(1) Cause of death was defined using the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) codes 260-269 (malnutrition) and E904.1 (effects of hunger) for the years 1997 to 2000, and the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) codes E40-E46 (malnutrition) and T73.0 (effects of hunger) for 2001 onwards. Deaths were included where one of these causes was mentioned anywhere on the death certificate. The introduction of ICD-10 in 2001 means that the numbers of deaths from each cause before 2001 are not completely comparable with later years.
(2) Deaths in private residences are those occurring at the usual residence of the deceased (according to the informant), where this is not a communal establishment. ‘Private care home’ includes non-NHS private nursing homes and private residential homes. ‘State care home’ includes NHS private nursing homes and local authority residential homes. ‘Hospital’ includes NHS and non-NHS hospitals, or multifunction sites. Deaths occurring in places not defined above, including hospices, are included in the ‘other’ category.
(3) Based on boundaries as of 2008.
(4) Figures are for deaths registered in each calendar year.

Mrs. Maria Miller: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many multiple births there were in (a) Basingstoke constituency and (b) Hampshire to mothers aged (i) below 18, (ii) between 18 and 24, (iii) between 25 and 29 and (iv) above 30 years, in each year since 1997. [200519]

(2) what progress the Information Centre has made in reviewing which data on prescribing should be made available in the future; when it expects to make changes to the availability of data on prescribing; and if he will make a statement. [195335]

Dawn Primarolo: The Information Centre for health and social care agreed to produce a review document seeking to determine whether it will be possible to make practice level prescribing data more accessible to the private sector with due regard to appropriate legislation, current Departmental policy and the professional regulations of those involved in the supply of prescriptions.

This review is ongoing and there are currently no proposals for the release of practice level prescribing data or any anticipated dates for changes to the current position.
