asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the numbers of National Health Service abortions performed in Scotland on women resident in each health board area in Scotland in 1984 and 1985.
The number of abortions performed in National Health Service hospitals in 1984 and 1985 on women resident in each health board area is set out in the table. The figures for the island health boards have been grouped together because of the small number of terminations performed.
|Argyll and Clyde||545||484|
|Ayrshire and Arran||638||601|
|Dumfries and Galloway||252||233|
|1 Orkney, Shetland, Western Isles health boards.|
