HC Deb 21 April 1998 vol 310 c582W
15. Mr. Amess

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland pursuant to his answer of 17 February 1998,Official Report, column 579, on abortion law, what response he has made to the six letters. [37629]

Mr. Galbraith

The six letters sought changes in the current abortion law. They received responses explaining that this Government, like their predecessors, do not adopt a collective position on the ethical issues of abortion and that proposals for changes in the abortion law have always been decided in Parliament on the basis of free votes.
