Healthy Lives, Healthy People: Government Strategy for Public Health in England (Department of Health) - TSI response - March 2011

TSI response (PDF 139KB). Whilst TSI is surprised that the valuable contribution of Trading Standards towards improving health and wellbeing was not acknowledged in this White Paper, we welcome the Government's recognition of the Trading Standards role in tobacco control in its Tobacco Control Plan for England and hopes that the Government will continue to recognise the Trading Standards role in future strategies to be published under the auspices of this White Paper. This response is full of examples of Trading Standards work in the public health arena.
