HC Deb 18 June 1956 vol 554 c1029
15. Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Agriculture. Fisheries and Food the position with regard to the consideration by the Food Standards Committee of the problem of the meat content of sausages.

Mr. Amory

I have now received the Committee's Report and, in agreement with my right hon. Friends the Secretary of State for Scotland and the Minister of Health, I have arranged for it to be published at the end of this week.

Mr. Dodds

Can the right hon. Gentleman state whether or not he is in favour of some standards for sausages, or is it his intention to publish a report and let the trade interests have a look at it before he comes to a decision?

Mr. Amory

After the Report has been published, I shall give all the interests concerned a chance of making representations to me. Then I shall make a decision.
