HC Deb 18 October 1982 vol 29 c58W
Mr. Shersby

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the latest figure for the total per capita consumption of sugar in the United Kingdom as estimated by the Health Education Council; and from what sources the information is obtained on which the figures are based.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg:

The Health Education Council does not produce estimates of total per capita sugar consumption. Estimates are published by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food in its press notices and have been used from time to time in the Health Education Council publications.
