Dundee LibDems support action to improve Scotland's children's health

January 29, 2007 8:06 AM

Dundee Liberal Democrats today (Monday 29th January) gave their support to comments by Scottish Liberal Democrat Education spokesperson Iain Smith MSP, who has called for more action to improve children's health.

Iain Smith said, "We have made great progress in improving school meals. Even Jamie Oliver agrees that Scotland is 'light years ahead of England.'

"However, we must look to go further still. A healthy diet must be backed up by having regular exercise in their communities and schools."

Locally, here in Dundee, LibDem spokesperson Cllr Helen Dick said, "We welcome the Scottish Executive's investment in and expansion of child healthcare and look forward to it being expanded even further.

"This is a vital issue and should be emphasised during the forthcoming Scottish parliamentary elections."
