The information requested is not available. Hospital episode statistics (HES) do not have classifications by the wide terms of trauma classified as psychological, medical, injury, wound or shock. HES can provide data based on the International Classification of Diseases and related Health Problems tenth Revision (ICD10) diagnoses codes. HES can also provide data on procedures
or interventions performed on the patient while in hospital, these would be based on the Office of National Statistics Classification of Interventions and Procedures codings. Information on the diagnosis codes can be found at:
Gregory Barker: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what progress has been made on the commitments undertaken at the meetings of the Major Economies Process on Energy Security and Climate Change in Washington, USA and Honolulu, Hawaii; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Mike O'Brien: The meetings referred to were focused around an exchange of views rather than specific commitments. The process bought together leaders of major economies for the first time to discuss the energy security and climate change agenda. Their expression of strong commitment to and support for achieving a global agreement on climate change in 2009 within the UN process has added valuable momentum to the ongoing debate.
Mrs. Lait: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what representations he has received on the powers of entry provisions in the Energy Bill relating to carbon dioxide inspectors. 
Mr. Mike O'Brien: I have not previously had any representations on the powers of entry provisions of carbon dioxide storage inspectors in the Energy Bill. However, during the House of Commons Energy Bill debate on 21 February 2008, the hon. Member for Wealden (Charles Hendry), Official Report, column 180, raised this issue, seeking clarification of the sanctions provided in the Bill for people who have deliberately obstructed inspectors in their work and the then Energy Minister reassured the hon. Member that the sanctions were adequate.
