To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if, pursuant to his answer of 8 February,Official Report, column 1115, the one case of mention of rape on a notification form for an abortion after 18 weeks concerns a woman under the age of majority.

The statistic referred to in my previous answer was provisional, and it related to gestation of 18 completed weeks and over. The age of the woman concerned was under the age of majority (that is, under 18 years old).
