HC Deb 13 February 1961 vol 634 c903
1. Mr. F. Noel-Baker

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food which interests have now made representations to him about the report on bread and flour by the Food Standards Committee.

The Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Mr. Christopher Soames)

I have so far received representations from manufacturers, local authorities and an organisation concerned with advertising.

Mr. Noel-Baker

Can the Minister say when he is likely to finish consideration of this matter and be in a position to make a public announcement?

Mr. Soames

I have asked for all representations to be in by 17th February. The date of my announcement will depend on how many there are. I shall, of course, have to consider them, but I will make an announcement as soon as possible
