HC Deb 14 December 1978 vol 960 cc263-4W
19. Mr. Burden

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, in view of the fact that some food and drink additives create medical problems such as allergic reactions in consumers, he will seek to introduce legislation to provide that all additives are stated on the product label.

Mr. Strang

It is a general principle of our existing food legislation that the presence of additives in prepackaged foods should be indicated on the label.
