To ask the Secretary of State for Health, with reference to page 24 of the document, Children and Young People's Eating Disorder Access and Waits Commissioning Guide, published by NHS England in July 2015, when he expects NHS England to publish the tolerance level for referral to treatment for 2017-18.

NHS England is not planning this approach, rather NHS Operational Planning and Contracting Guidance 2017-2019 required each National Health Service clinical commissioning group (CCG) to set out its own trajectory to meet the eating disorder standard by 2020. All CCG plans for 2017-19, submitted to NHS England by 23 December 2016, included local stated trajectories for meeting the standard by 2020.
