Health Select Committee Report on Public Health (Government Response)

Volume 540: debated on Tuesday 7 February 2012

Today we have laid before Parliament the Government’s response to the Health Select Committee report on public health (Cm 8290). The response summarises the Government’s plans to modernise the public health system, including giving local authorities a new leadership role in public health and the creation of an integrated public health body, Public Health England, to provide expert advice and support.

Copies of the Government’s response are available to hon. Members from the Vote Office and to noble Lords from the Printed Paper office.
