§ Mrs. Dunwoody
asked the Attorney-General whether he was consulted by the Director of Public Prosecutions before the director decided not to prosecute under the provisions of section 2(1) of the Abortion Act 1967 certain persons who revealed confidential details on the statutory abortion form HSA1 to the press.
§ The Attorney-General
No. The complaint to which the hon. Member refers disclosed no criminal offence. I have written to her explaining the legal aspects of the matter.
