Jonathan Ashworth – 2020 Comments on IPPR’s Report

The comments made by Jonathan Ashworth, the Shadow Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, on 27 August 2020.

Radically improving children’s health and wellbeing is a priority for Labour. This report is a stark reminder we are amidst a childhood obesity crisis and that we need concerted government effort to bring obesity levels down. But instead of prioritising immediate action, ministers are embarking on a risky reorganisation including abolishing Public Health England and now can’t even tell us who will be responsible for driving forward obesity work.”
