Simon Harris is working to have a new abortion law published by Valentine’s Day next year, The Times has learnt.
The health minister has set the deadline for his department because he believes it allows enough time for the controversial legislation to be scrutinised before a referendum in May or June. Department of Health sources confirmed Mr Harris has set Feburary 14 as the date that the work must be finished.
