§ Mr. Morgan
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what analysis he has made of the current trends in death rates from(a) suicide, (b) road accidents,(c) violence, (d) drugs and (e) other causes for men aged (i) 15 to 24 and (ii) 25 to 44 years, relative to the targets set out in the Welsh "The Health of the Nation" publications. 
§ Mr. Hague
There are no specific targets for men in these age groups set out in the Welsh protocols for investment in health gain. Analyses of death rates for men aged 15 to 44 years were set out in "Welsh Health", the 1995 annual report of the chief medical officer, in particular figures 2.10 and 2.11 on pages 13 and 14 respectively. The report is available in the Library of the House.
The injuries protocol does include a target for reducing the death rate from road traffic accidents for persons aged 15 to 24 years. Progress towards this target is described on page 32 of the chief medical officer's annual report.
