§ Mr. Gordon Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many suicides and attempted suicides there were in Scotland for the years 1975 to 1982, inclusive; and if he will break down the figures by region.
§ Mr. John MacKay
Figures for 1975 to 1981 are published in the annual reports of the Registrar General for Scotland—table C2.16—copies of which are in the Library. Final figures for 1982 are not yet available. Statistics on the number of attempted suicides in Scotland are not available centrally.
