To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what proportion of his Department's funding was allocated to reduce physical inactivity in (a) 2014-15, (b) 2015-16 and (c) 2016-17; and what he plans to spend on that in 2017-18.
To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many of his Department's officials are solely responsible for (a) reducing physical inactivity and (b) reducing obesity among children and adults.
It is not possible to provide figures on what proportion of the Department’s funding is allocated to reduce physical inactivity because budgets from across the Department and Public Health England (PHE) contribute to this area.
The Department does not have a separate team in which members are working solely full-time on reducing physical inactivity or reducing obesity among children and adults. Officials from across the Department work flexibly and may have a role in these areas. In addition, officials from PHE also contribute to this work.
