Mr. Hargreaves

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) if he will publish in the Official Report the names of the proprietors and location of those hospitals or other premises which are equipped to perform abortions; and how many beds each unit has;

(2) if he will list in the Official Report those hospitals which are equipped to perform abortions after 20 weeks gestation;
