HC Deb 15 February 1972 vol 831 c70W
Mrs. Joyce Butler

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what account he has taken of recent studies in the United States of America on possible cancer hazards from saccharin, details of which are in his possession; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

My right hon. Friend is aware of the statement by the United States Food and Drug Administration about the preliminary results of one of a number of studies about the safety of using saccharin. When the results of all relevant studies are available they will be examined by the Food Additives and Contaminants Committee and the Pharmacology Sub-Committee so that an informed assessment can be made.
