HC Deb 16 December 2002 vol 396 cc565-6W
Mrs. Caroline Spelman

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what additional work her Department has undertaken to improve sanitation

My Department only considers support for activities to improve the quality, safety and accessibility of abortion services where this is legal in the country concerned, and where it is available as a matter of uncoerced individual choice. In all situations, DFID will consider support for measures to improve access to effective and high quality post-abortion care to deal with the complication of spontaneous or induced abortion.

I discussed the project with the President of Peru during his recent visit to London and he was strongly supportive.
