HC Deb 05 March 1987 vol 111 cc649-50W
Mr. Coombs

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the actions taken by his Department since the publication of the COMA report designed to assist in the prevention of coronary heart disease.

Mr. Ridley

The Sports Council sponsored by his Department continues to encourage participation in sports and recreational activities to enhance health and fitness. Also, the voluntary agreement on the sponsorship and related advertising of sporting events has recently been renegotiated with the tobacco industry, as outlined in my hon. Friend the Minister of Sports reply of 19 January to his hon. Friend the Member for Luton, North (Mr. Carlisle).
