HC Deb 23 January 1990 vol 165 c677W
123. Mr. Strang

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what is the latest evidence as to the efficiency of the heterosexual transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus; and whether he will make a statement.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

I refer the hon. Member to my earlier reply to him on 11 December 1990 at column502. A number of scientific journals have contained articles on this topic; these include the British Medical Journal (18 February 1989, pp 401-2, 411-15) and "AIDS 1988 2" (supplement 1) pp S49-56, copies of which are available in the Library.
