HC Deb 02 May 1972 vol 836 c101W
Mr. Eddie Griffiths

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what application he has received from the Beechwood Clinic, Sheffield, for permission for the Norton Annexe to be used for private abortions; and if he will carry out a survey in Sheffield before considering such an application.

Sir K. Joseph:

I have received an application for approval under the Abortion Act from this clinic and I am considering it; I do not think it would be appropriate for me to carry out a survey in Sheffield in connection with the application, but I am willing to take into account representations made to me which are relevant to my function under the Act.
