HC Deb 21 May 1993 vol 225 c330W
Lady Olga Maitland

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans she has to encourage magazines for teenage girls to include moral as well as practical advice on sexual issues.

Mr. Sackville

It is important that discussion about sexual health matters has proper regard to moral considerations, the value of family life and the responsibilities of parenthood, and this is the approach set out in the Government's White Paper "The Health of the Nation". We hope that those responsible within the media for decisions about the content of magazines read by young people will bear this firmly in mind.
