To ask the Secretary of State for Health what progress the Government has made in meeting targets set for men's health in the National Plan. [135989]

This includes initiatives to reduce smoking and improve diet and nutrition. Action to tackle drugs and alcohol misuse will also impact preferentially on men's health.
