Sandra Gidley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will bring forward proposals to monitor the incidence of liver disease as a marker for the performance of public health programmes on alcohol, obesity and blood-borne viruses. 
The Government have published strategies for alcohol misuse, viral hepatitis and obesity, designed to improve diagnosis and treatment for the future. However, we are aware that despite these strategies, there is a problem in the shorter term of managing the primary causes of liver disease.
