HC Deb 24 June 1991 vol 193 cc387-8W
Mr. Speed

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what action his Department plans to take to recognise World Diabetes Day on 27 June and to implement the measures agreed in the St. Vincent declaration of October 1989.

Mr. Dorrell

The Department's chief medical officer has sent a message of encouragement to mark World Diabetes Day. The recommendations in the St. Vincent declaration for the care of people with diabetes in Europe have been incorporated in the Government's Green Paper "The Health of the Nation". We have invited comments on these with a view to the possible development of targets for this country.
