HC Deb 23 February 1968 vol 759 c198W
Mr. Whitaker

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will have consultations, with a view to providing that bread and other perishable food should have its date on its wrapping.

Mr. Hoy

No. This question was carefully considered before the Labelling of Food Regulations 1967 were made. We are satisfied that the balance of advantage is against compulsory date stamping.
