To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many women in (a) Hendon and (b) Barnet participated in the Healthy Start programme in the last 12 months; and if he will make a statement. (178178)

The number of women eligible for Healthy Start at any given point in time varies. However, we estimate that take up of the scheme in England is currently approximately 87 per cent. This is equivalent to around 342,000 beneficiary households.
