Whatever happened to the obesity strategy?
The Prime Minister"s battle against Brexit and the launch of the childhood obesity strategy would not at first glance appear to have much in common. But the former, in the shape of the dramatic events which have played out since last week, is highly relevant to the progress of the latter. The key thing to remember is that David Cameron is involved in both.
The Government strategy on childhood obesity in England has been much talked about since last summer. There was talk of a launch before Christmas, then early in the New Year, then in February. But still it has not appeared. There is speculation now that it may not be published before Easter. The simple reason is the Prime Minister"s overcrowded diary and his current preoccupation with Europe.
