To ask Her Majesty's Government whether, as part of the current review of the homeopathy content of the Department of Health website, they will make clear on the website that homeopathy has been available on the NHS since its inception; and how they will take account of the June 2010 paper Observations on the report Evidence Check 2: Homeopathy by the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee by Earl Baldwin of Bewdley.

The content on the NHS Choices website is currently under review in the context of the department's policy on complementary and alternative medicine therapies, which is that decisions on commissioning and funding such services are the responsibility of the National Health Service. Relevant information will be taken into account in the review.
