§ Mr. Dodds
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food on what date the Food Standards Committee was invited to consider the necessity for more regulations to govern the composition of flour and bread in order to protect the consumers' interests ; what meetings have been held to look into this problem ; and when the Committee is expected to report.
The invitation was conveyed to the Committee on 25th May, and written evidence was called for from interested parties by 31st October, to be followed later by oral evidence. A preliminary survey of the problems involved was made by the Committee at meetings on 17th July and 16th October. I cannot say when the Committee will be in a position to report.
