Health Inequality

Volume 480: debated on Thursday 16 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what steps he has taken to develop a joint health inequality study with his counterparts in the Scottish Executive, Northern Ireland Assembly and Welsh Assembly Government. (226870)

No steps have been taken to develop a joint health inequality study. While responsibility for health matters rests with the devolved Administrations, there has been, and continues to be, liaison and co-operation between the Department and the other health departments on health inequalities, including meetings to exchange information on current work and strategy.
