Point of Order

Volume 506: debated on Wednesday 24 February 2010

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I ask this while the Secretary of State is in his place, and with malnourishment being one of the many serious issues that arose at Mid Staffs. You will recall, Mr. Deputy Speaker, the answer given to me on 2 February 2010, at column 236W of Hansard, saying that the nutrition action plan, which the Government have been sitting on since as far back as last July, would be published “in February 2010.” If that is to happen with a statement made to the House, it would need to happen tomorrow. Have you been given any indication that there will be an oral statement on that subject tomorrow?

I have no knowledge of the point that the hon. Gentleman makes, but I understand that the Secretary of State is anxious to say something.

Briefly, Mr. Deputy Speaker, tomorrow is dignity action day, and we will publish the nutrition action plan report tomorrow.
