HC Deb 12 May 1972 vol 836 cc450-1W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will introduce legislation to require that handling and cooking instructions be included on meat and poultry products to prevent samonella and other food poisoning.

Mr. Alison:

The trade is encouraged to provide advice on the correct handling and cooking of food on labels when appropriate, but we do not consider it necessary to make such labelling compulsory.
