Motion text

That this House notes the report by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation published in 1999 that highlighted that over four million people in the United Kingdom do not have reasonable access to a healthy diet; further notes reports by the Malnutrition Advisory Group that show that up to 5,000 people in each parliamentary constituency may be malnourished and that one in seven people over 65 years are malnourished or at serious risk of malnourishment; recognises that this situation can be caused by a number of factors such as inadequate income, lack of reasonable access to shops or other outlets selling healthy food and inadequate information; further notes that one of the causes of childhood obesity is inadequate access to, or information concerning, healthy food; and therefore supports the provisions in the Food Justice Strategies Bill which was introduced in the last Parliament and supported by over 200 honourable Members.
