To ask the Scottish Government what information it has regarding how many people have been injured because of exposure to the sap of giant hogweed in each of the last five years.

Answered by Aileen McLeod (14/09/2015):

The Scottish Government does not hold information on the number of people injured as a result of exposure to giant hogweed. Data coding for patients who suffer such an injury does not specify the type of plant or environmental hazard which has caused it. Cases are likely to be coded as burns or blistering of the skin.
