HC Deb 22 November 1977 vol 939 cc670-1W
70. Miss Boothroyd

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what talks his Department has arranged or intends to arrange with hon. Members with a view to discussing the workings of the Abortion Act 1967 and the introduction of further legislation regarding termination of pregnancy; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Moyle

I have arranged and attended two meetings of hon. Members at which the working of the Abortion Act 1967 and the issues arising from proposals to amend that Act have been discussed. Whether further meetings take place will depend on the views of the hon. Members concerned.
