Mr. Keetch

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what provisions have been made to ensure effective dissemination of public information in the event of a large-scale disease outbreak; and if he will make a statement. [103436]

Ms Blears

The Department ensures that the public has access to a wide range of information resources on disease and immunisations. It is available direct to the public and via health professionals. In the event of a large-scale disease outbreak, information can be disseminated through existing local and national networks.
