HC Deb 10 December 1986 vol 107 c210W
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.
