Answer for Wellbeing

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am very concerned that London has the highest proportion of overweight or obese children aged 10-11 years in England. The action I will take to tackle obesity in London will be developed as part of my comprehensive public health strategy.

I am also concerned that London still has one of the highest rates of TB in Western Europe.  I look forward to working with partners at the London TB Control Board to tackle this disease and to reduce the rates of TB in London.
