§ Dr. Moonie
To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) if he will make it his policy to accept the targets for health set out in "The Nation's Health: A Strategy for the 1990's"; and if he will make a statement;
(2) if he has considered the recommendations made to Government in "The Nation's Health"; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Freeman
The recommendations and targets pu t forward in the report "The Nation's Health" cover the work of a number of Government Departments not simply this Department. We welcome the publication of the report, not least because it helps to emphasise the promotion of good health and the prevention of disease:. Many of its concerns had already been recognised by the Government and acted upon before publication. We will be considering the many detailed points in the report.
