Unhealthy high streets – Jonathan Ashworth responds

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health and Social Care Secretary, responding to the Royal Society for Public Health’s report on unhealthy high streets, said:

“We’re facing a public health crisis in many of our towns and cities, and yet the Chancellor is imposing £1 billion worth of cuts to the health services that help people stop smoking, that tackle obesity and which deal with drink problems. These cuts should have been reversed in this week’s Budget.”
