§ Mr. Freeson
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what advice is publicly available from his Department on the contribution which physical exercise can make in reducing the incidence of coronary heart disease.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
The Department's booklet "Avoiding Heart Attacks", available from Her Majesty's Stationery Office and through booksellers, includes a chapter on the part which physical exercise can play in reducing the incidence of coronary heart disease. The Health Education Council also has a wide range of publications and other material on fitness and health. The importance of regular exercise is stressed in the council's "Look after Yourself' campaign which has run continuously since January 1978.
