HC Deb 19 March 1985 vol 75 c455W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many discharges from hospital there were following diagnosis of septic abortion in each of the following years: 1967, 1968, 1969, 1975, 1980, 1982 and 1983.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

[pursuant to his reply, 20 February, c. 501]: I regret that the estimate given for the number of discharges, including deaths, from NHS hospitals in England and Wales with main diagnosis of septic abortion in 1982 was incorrect. The revised estimate is 390.
