HC Deb 02 June 1999 vol 334 c543 9.33 am
Mrs. Cheryl Gillan (Chesham and Amersham)

I should like to present the petition of my young constituent Jake Steel, aged nine, and others.

The petition declares: The introduction of GM food would have a disastrous effect on the environment and be a health hazard. The Petitioner therefore requests that the House of Commons urges the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to call for a ban on all Genetically Modified Foods and Crops in the United Kingdom and for a thorough independent investigation into GM foods. I should like to present two other petitions. The first is from one of my constituents, Mrs. Louise Bradbury, Healthright, Holland and Barrett, and others on the classification of health products by the Medicines Control Agency.

The final petition is the humble petition of Rodney Howlett, on European matters.

To lie upon the Table.
