Asked again about the Prime Minister’s comments on abortion during PMQs yesterday, the PMOS said that as he had old journalists at yesterday afternoon’s briefing, the Prime Minister had not been signalling a change in Government policy or approach on abortion. He had simply been underlining the point that this was an issue which, in the past, had been up to individual MPs to consider and that that was the way it would be in the future. What Parliament decided to do was a matter for Parliament. He had been acknowledging the simple fact that as time moved on, so too did science.
