HC Deb 02 July 1992 vol 210 c684W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make a statement regarding the uses to which foetal parts from aborted pre-born babies are put when they are not incinerated.

Mr. Sackville

A code of practice on the use of foetal tissue is contained in the Polkinghorne report on the review of the guidance on the research use of foetal and foetal material, a copy of which is in the Library. Health authorities and places approved under section 1(3) of the Abortion Act 1967 have been asked to ensure that the code of practice is fully adhered to.
