§ 48. Mr. THURTLE
asked the Prime Minister if, in view of the national importance of the matter, he can see his way clear to give the House an opportunity of directing that maternity centres provided at the cost of public funds should be free to give information on birth control to such married women as may desire it?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
In the present state of public business it will be impossible to find time for this, unless an opportunity should arise on the Estimates of the Ministry of Health.
§ Mr. THURTLE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is a very general desire in all parts of the House that this question should be discussed at an early date. [HON. MEMBERS: "No!"]
