To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will commission a cost-benefit analysis of allocating additional funding for the (a) prevention and (b) treatment of obesity.
We welcome the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Obesity’s report ‘The current landscape of obesity services’ which makes a valuable contribution to this debate.
We published the second chapter of our world-leading childhood obesity plan on 25 June. This builds on the real progress we have made since the publication of chapter one in 2016, particularly in reformulation of the products our children eat and drink most. As with our initial plan, these new policies were informed by the latest research and emerging evidence, including from debates in Parliament and various reports from key stakeholders.
There are no current plans to commission a cost-benefit analysis of allocating additional funding for the prevention and treatment of obesity.
