HC Deb 14 November 1932 vol 270 c755
58. Mr. POTTER

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the mortality and morbidity in childbirth in the Borough of Stepney, he will call for reports from the medical officers of health as to the advisability of establishing a municipal birth-control clinic in that borough?


No, Sir. Local authorities have no general power to establish birth control clinics as such. I will send my hon. Friend a copy of the circulars issued by my Department on this subject.
