HC Deb 05 December 1985 vol 88 c339W
Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects to be in a position to announce his new guidelines to doctors on the circumstances in which they can prescribe the contraceptive pill to girls under 16 years without informing their parents; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hayhoe

I hope to announce revised guidance shortly.
