asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how much of the budget of the Health Education Council is currently spent on improving dietary knowledge; and what percentage of its total budget this figure represents.

Dietary information is provided by the Health Education Council as part of its "Look After Yourself' programme which is designed to show the health benefits of eating and drinking sensibly, stopping or reducing smoking, and exercise. £722,000 has been allocated to the programme in this financial year, some 11 per cent. of the Council's budget of £6·57 million.
