Asthma: Children

Volume 478: debated on Thursday 26 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what recent discussions he has had with the Department of Children, Schools and Families on the care of children with (a) asthma and (b) diabetes. (212076)

My right hon. Friends the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families and the Secretary of State for Health meet regularly to discuss matters of interest to the two Departments. They have not met specifically to discuss diabetes or asthma, although meetings have covered the child health strategy, due later this year, which will cover a range of issues including care of children with long-term health conditions.
