asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many abortions were notified in 1974 for women whose usual residence was in Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Coventry and Liverpool, respectively; and how many of these were performed in a NHS hospital in the home region, in non-NHS premises in the home region, in a NHS hospital in another region and non-NHS premises in another region.

I regret that the data for 1974 are not yet available in the detail necessary to answer this Question. I shall write to my hon. Friend when the information becomes available later in the year.
