HC Deb 22 May 1973 vol 857 cc40-1W
43. Mr. Whitehead

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will name the local authorities which have announced plans to set up vasectomy services under the National Health Service (Family Planning) Amendment Act 1972, and those which have not.

Sir K. Joseph

This information is not available centrally. However, local health authorities have been informed that I will be asking them for reports regarding vasectomy provided under the Act for the calendar year 1973, and these will indicate which authorities have made arrangements for vasectomy and which have not.
