HC Deb 02 March 1987 vol 111 c467W
Mr. Nicholls

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many prosecutions have been brought during the last five years on charges of child destruction under the Infant Life (Preservation) Act; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

The information available to me, which may be incomplete, shows no prosecutions brought for child destruction under section 1 of the Infant Life (Preservation) Act 1929 in the years 1981 to 1985. Information for 1986 is not yet available.
