HC Deb 04 December 1973 vol 865 cc329-30W
47. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will seek powers to require pregnancy advice bureaux to be licensed.

Sir K. Joseph

The activities of pregnancy advice bureaux are one of the particular matters that led to the setting up of the inquiry by the Committee on the Working of the Abortion Act. I shall be studying its recommendations before deciding what action is necessary. I expect to receive its report before the end of the year.
