Information on low birthweight babies and stillbirths is not routinely published for lower layer super output areas, in order to protect the privacy of individual mothers and babies. ONS routinely publishes figures on low birthweight babies and stillbirth for local authorities in England and Wales.
The table gives the percentages of births which resulted in (a) a baby with a low birthweight and (b) a stillbirth, in each local authority, in 2007 (the most recent year for which figures are available). A copy has been placed in the Library of the House.
Mr. Stephen O'Brien:
To ask the Secretary of State for Health with reference to the answer of 1 September 2008, Official Report, column 1676W, on departmental ICT, whether his Department has received a certificate in respect of compliance with the ISO 27001 standard for (a) IT systems and (b) services operated by his Department. 
ISO 27001 is the international standard for the security management of information systems and superseded the British Standard BS 7799. The Department chose to comply with BS 7799 rather than seek full certification against the standard for its information systems and has maintained this stance with ISO 27001. Internal Audit carried out reviews of compliance against the standard until 2007, when responsibility for this work moved to the Security and Assurance Team.
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what recent reports he has received of allegations of patients having been given drugs by doctors to accelerate their death; and if he will make a statement. 
We are aware of the recently published study in the journal Palliative Medicine(1) which reports on a postal survey of medical practitioners about patients deaths.

Mr. Greg Knight:
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will discuss with his EU counterparts the adequacy of labelling on meat products which are injected with a mixture of salt, phosphates and water; and if he will make a statement. 
The European Commission is currently revising European food labelling legislation and published a proposal of a new regulation on the provision of food information to consumers. UK officials have raised this point during negotiations on this dossier and initial indications are that member states are generally in favour of further clarifying rules to ensure that consumers are not mislead where water, salt and other ingredients are added to meat products.
Mr. Greg Knight:
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will bring forward proposals in respect of the labelling of enhanced fresh meats to indicate if they have been injected with a mixture of salt, phosphates and water; and if he will make a statement. 
If ingredients such as salt, phosphates and water are added to meat it cannot be sold as fresh 2 Apr 2009 : Column 1472W
meat. It must be sold as a meat preparation or product and must be labelled to indicate that such ingredients have been added.
The labelling of meat products with added ingredients such as salt, phosphates and water must already follow general labelling rules established at European Union level. Specifically, it is controlled by the Food Labelling Regulations 1996 (as amended) and the Meat Products Regulations 2003 (MPR) (as amended). This legislation requires that the name of the food and ingredients list reflects its true nature so that consumers are accurately informed and not misled.
