To ask the Secretary of State for Health why he has decided not to accompany the publication of his report on "The Diets of British Schoolchildren" by a press conference; and if he will make a statement.

It is not the usual practice of the Department to hold press conferences or press briefings on every occasion that a report is published. Publication of reports is accompanied by a press release relayed to all national newspapers and other media together with an extensive mailing to a range of magazines. Such a press release accompanied publication of this report in June 1989.
