Motion text

That this House recognises that people with coeliac disease have an autoimmune disease for which the only treatment is a lifelong adherence to a gluten-free diet; considers that for many of those diagnosed, eating out is a continuous challenge; urges those in the hospitality industry to reap the benefits of this market by providing safe, gluten-free options on menus; and commends and supports Coeliac UK for its Gluten-free Challenge campaign which aims to make eating out possible for all people with the condition, to significantly improve their quality of life and create understanding of coeliac disease.
