22nd Feb 2024
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps her Department is taking to ensure that a commitment to reducing inequalities in (a) pregnancy loss and (b) baby deaths is included in the next Three year delivery plan for maternity and neonatal services.

The Government is committed to tackling and reducing disparities in health outcomes, and works closely with NHS England to improve equity for mothers and babies, and race equality for staff. A central ambition of the National Health Services’ three-year delivery plan for maternity and neonatal services is to reduce inequalities in access, experience, and outcomes for women and babies. This plan is available at the following link:


There are no current plans to revise the three-year plan, and NHS England are focused on delivering the existing commitments, including those relating to inequalities in still birth and neonatal death.

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether he has made an estimate of the proportion of VAT that was collected on gym memberships in each of the last five years.

The information is not available. HM Revenue and Customs does not hold information on VAT revenue from specific products or services, including VAT on gym memberships. This is because businesses are not required to provide figures at a product level within their VAT returns, as this would impose an excessive administrative burden.

Financial Secretary (HM Treasury)
