§ Mrs, Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he is satisfied that women are sufficiently aware of the existence of ante-natal tests to discover possible abnormalities; and if he 358W will take steps to ensure that this information is widely available.
§ Dr. Vaughan
The Health Departments' publication " Reducing the Risk " refers to the importance of ante-natal tests and emphasises the need for the expectant mother to see her doctor early in pregnancy. It is then for the doctor advising her to tell her of those tests which, in his clinical judgment, he considers to be appropriate.
