HC Deb 24 April 1998 vol 310 cc731-2W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the effect which charging for the contraceptive pill would have on the level of unwanted pregnancies in Britain. [37833]

Ms Jowell

No detailed assessment has been made as no such proposal is under consideration. Published studies suggest that any such charges would result in an increase in unwanted conceptions.
