HC Deb 15 November 1979 vol 973 c750W
Mr. Alexander

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will undertake not to withdraw his Department's advice to doctors that they may give confidential contraceptive assistance to girls under the age of 16 years.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

I am reviewing the terms in which the Department's advice on this complex issue is expressed; when I have done this, I shall announce my conclusions.
