My hon. Friend is right, because obviously, any suicide is a suicide too many. However, the success of the suicide strategy has meant that the numbers have dropped considerably and we are leaders in the European Union. There are a range of things that we can do to support more people in the community, but I will come to that later.

how do you know the figures have dropped because of what you are doing...i have been told in many cases if there is no suicide note a suspicious death can be notched up as misadventure etc...not giving a true picture at all....let's face it you can make the figures say anything you want them to say
