HC Deb 16 July 1987 vol 119 c627W
Mr. Irving

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will consider, as part of his campaign against AIDS, promoting the idea of avoiding risk activities rather than just relying on condoms.

Mr. Newton

Our campaign to date has actively promoted avoidance of activities that carry a risk of HIV transmission and will continue to do so. For those who are unwilling or unable to restrict sexual contacts to a single faithful partner, condoms provide some protection. We will continue to promote this message in our compaign of AIDS public education.
