HC Deb 02 July 1969 vol 786 c95W
Mrs. Joyce Butler

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will include provision for a warning mark on packs containing poisonous or dangerous chemicals in regulations under consideration in implementation of the Farm and Garden Chemicals Act.

Mr. Hoy

Discussions on the classification and marking of pesticides according to toxicity are taking place under the Council of Europe (Partial Agreement) and we do not wish to prejudice these by taking unilateral action now.
