Abortion: Midwives college writes to health minister over working group delay

The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) writes to the health minister with concerns over a delay in establishing a working group on the issue of abortions in cases of fatal foetal abnormality.

Last month the Health Minister said he would establish a working group on the issue by the end of February.

The letter, from the college's Northern Ireland director questions why it has yet to be approached.

BBC News NI Health Correspondent Marie-Louise Connolly reports.
