HC Deb 22 June 1971 vol 819 c225W
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.
