§ Mr. George
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what proportion of children in households with under £19, £19 to £32 or £32 or more income were less than the mean for their age in height and weight.
§ Dr. Owen
I regret that this information is not available.
The Chief Medical Officer's committee on medical aspects of food policy is responsible for the nutritional surveillance of the population including children in households with low incomes and to date they have found no cause for concern about their nutritional status.
