Mr. Alison

In the first quarter of 1973 14,222 notifications were received in respect of abortions performed in England and Wales on women whose usual place of residence was outside England and Wales : 14,175 of these operations were performed in private nursing homes approved under the Abortion Act 1967. Of the 47 non-resident women who had abortions in National Health Service hospitals, 16 came from other parts of the British Isles, 20 from countries in the European Economic Community and 11 from other parts of the world.

The figures may also include members or dependants of British Service personnel serving overseas.
