HC Deb 22 May 1986 vol 98 cc311-2W
Mr. Hargreaves

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services which organisations receive resources from his Department or through its agencies for instruction in, promotion of, and research into, natural methods of family planning; and how many organisations received an offer for such funding, for each of the past three years.

Mr. Hayhoe

The Department has given grants of £31,000 in 1983–84, £34,000 in 1984–85 and £36,500 in 1985–86 to the Catholic Marriage Advisory Council for work in the area of natural family planning. The Family Planning Association, which receives a Department grant, and the Family Planning Information Service which receives financial support from the Government-funded Health Education Council, also provide information and advice about natural family planning as part of their overall service.
