As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking the Minister for the Cabinet Office what the standardised mortality rate from prostate cancer was in each parliamentary constituency in the latest year for which figures are available.

Table 1 provides the age standardised mortality rate where prostate cancer was the underlying cause of death, for each parliamentary constituency in England and Wales, for deaths registered in 2012 (the latest year available).
