National Obesity Awareness Week And The Obesity Awareness And Solutions Trust

EDM number 1852 in 2005-06, proposed by David Amess on 20/03/2006.

That this House notes that the annual Parliamentary Reception of The Obesity Awareness and Solutions Trust (TOAST) was held in the Terrace Marquee of the House on 15th March and attended by Right honourable and honourable Members from both Houses and all political parties, as well as by healthcare professionals, charities and various other organisations and stakeholders in this field; welcomes the annual National Obesity Awareness Week 2006 which began on 12th March designed to raise awareness of the multifaceted nature of obesity; congratulates TOAST on the valuable contribution it has made to the fight against obesity through its work, including running the National Help and Information line to support those living with obesity and their families and offering training courses to enable workers in public, private and volunteering sectors to develop the skills to recognise the issues relating to obesity and to provide the tools to manage them; invites the Department of Health to reconsider its decision not to assist TOAST with funding for such initiatives; and extends to TOAST its best wishes for continuing success in highlighting the scale and causes of obesity and in providing practical support for those who are overweight and obese.

This motion has been signed by a total of 66 MPs.
