HC Deb 23 June 1982 vol 26 c127W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether his Department records in population statistics deaths of Service men overseas.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

Deaths of Service men overseas are taken into account in the Registrar General's estimate of the "total" population of this country. However, the mortality analyses published by the Registrar General relate to events in England and Wales only.
