To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services how many women had amniocentesis during 1986; in what proportion foetal abnormality associated with mental handicap was detected; how many terminations were carried out as a result; and at what stage of pregnancy.

Information about amniocentesis is not collected on the notification form and I regret therefore it is not possible to provide the information requested.
