Motion text

That this House is concerned that certain primary care trusts (PCTs) are refusing to prescribe, or are restricting the prescription of, gluten-free foods to people diagnosed with coeliac disease; condemns such action, which can only be cost-driven and not care-driven; and calls upon offending PCTs to ensure that all diagnosed sufferers of coeliac disease continue to receive on prescription all the basic staple foods, such as bread, flour, bread mixes, pasta and pizza bases, and other gluten-free foods where there is a clinical need.
