Motion text

That this House welcomes the publication by Public Health England of guidance for the commissioning of local infant feeding services; notes that the guidance states that breastfeeding is an important public health policy; is glad that the guidance has been produced in conjunction with the Unicef Baby Friendly Initiative, which has significant experience in promoting breastfeeding; hopes that this guidance will reinforce to commissioners the significance of breastfeeding to child and maternal health; and supports the ambition that breastfeeding is seen as normal and supported by everyone in public services and in the home, out and about and when returning to work.
