HC Deb 06 November 1968 vol 772 cc125-6W
Mr. Brooks

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT, for each of the counties and county boroughs of England and Wales in the years 1956, 1961, 1966 and 1967, the proportion of each area's illegitimate births which occurred among women aged 17 and under, 18, to 21, and over 21, respectively.

Mr. Snow

I regret that information on illegitimate births by age of mother is not available for 1956 or 1961. I am sending my hon. Friend some tables showing the only readily available age analysis for the areas specified for 1966 and 1967.
