§ Lord Braine of Wheatley
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they are aware of any research that has been conducted during the past 10 years into the incidence of post-abortion stress; what plans there are to fund future studies, and whether they will place in the Library of the House such information as they have currently available to them.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health (Baroness Cumberlege)
A study entitledTermination of pregnancy and psychiatric morbidity was funded by the Department of Health during this period. A report is awaiting publication. The department is always willing to consider soundly based research proposals subject to the competing demands on finite research funding.
