The hon. Gentleman raises the Jepson case. I live in Shropshire and am a Shropshire Member, and the county falls within the area of West Mercia police which, as the hon. Gentleman knows, was involved. I wrote to the chief constable asking him to investigate the case, because I have grave concerns. The police should enforce and not interpret the law on abortion, and there have been claims that abortions have taken place outside the law. I am glad that the hon. Gentleman raised that case, which shows a worrying trend.
