§ Mr. Coombs
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what plans he has to examine the cost of healthy eating and its effect on low-income families.
§ Mrs. Currie
This matter is kept under continuous review. I am advised that at any point along the normal range of family expenditure on food it should not be difficult to devise a healthy diet. The effect on low income families should be to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
