§ 15. Mrs. Knight
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services to what extent National Health Service facilities and personnel are used by clinics specialising in aborting foreign girls for profit; and what is his estimate of the cost to public funds of these services.
§ Sir K. Joseph
Apart from supplies of blood and certain pathological services, I am not aware of the use of National Health Service facilities or personnel by such clinics. Blood is supplied free to private nursing homes. I would expect any pathological services provided to be charged for.
