HC Deb 12 January 1971 vol 809 c43W
Mr. Money

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether it is the policy of National Health Service hospitals to employ student nurses, during their training, on operations involving legalised surgical abortion.

Sir K. Joseph

No; but training for the general part of the Nurses' Register includes a short period in operating theatres and it is possible that abortions might be encountered during such periods.
