HC Deb 24 February 1984 vol 54 cc642-3W
Mr. Shersby

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects that the Chief Medical Officer's report on medical aspects of food policy will be published.

Mr. John Patten

I assume this question refers to the report which the Chief Medical Officer's committee on the medical aspects of food policy (COMA) is awaiting from its panel on diet and cardiovascular disease. This panel, under the chairmanship of Professor P. J. Randle, FRS, has been considering the scientific evidence about the relationship between diet and heart disease and its report is expected later this year.
