HC Deb 18 July 1969 vol 787 c222W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the number of forms agreeing to abortion where the subsequent operation has taken place at the nursing home, 415 New Cross Road, during the last six months, and the number of those signed by the applicant who sought approval of that home for the purpose of abortion.

Mr. Crossman

I assume my hon. Friend is referring to notifications of which the number received of abortions carried out in this home in the first two quarters of 1969 is 284.

The disclosure of the information asked for in the second part of the Question would be contrary to Regulation 5 of the Abortion Regulations, 1968.
