Budget Resolutions

The following is an extract from the winding-up speech on the second day of the Budget Resolutions debate—Thursday 9 March 2017—made by the Financial Secretary to the Treasury.

As well as offering some kind words about me relating to my previous role, the right hon. Member for Leicester East rightly drew our attention to the Government’s work on prevention. I shall not be drawn into talking about that too much—as a former public health Minister, I could talk on that for some time—but I remind him of the national diabetes prevention fund and the related work, and the £16 billion a year from the public health budget that we give to local government.

[Official Report, 9 March 2017, Vol. 622, c. 1043.]

Letter of correction from Jane Ellison:

An error has been identified in my closing speech during the Budget Resolutions debate on 9 March 2017.

The correct response should have been:

As well as offering some kind words about me relating to my previous role, the right hon. Member for Leicester East rightly drew our attention to the Government’s work on prevention. I shall not be drawn into talking about that too much—as a former public health Minister, I could talk on that for some time—but I remind him of the national diabetes prevention fund and the related work, and the £16 billion over the settlement period from the public health budget that we give to local government.
