HC Deb 02 December 1982 vol 33 c290W
24. Mr. Allen Mckay

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what was the extent of the cost element which led him to reject mandatory ingredient listing for animal feeding stuffs.

Mr. Peter Walker

The estimates submitted to me so far vary widely, but indicate that there could be a considerable burden upon agriculture. As my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary made clear in her reply of 15 November to the hon. Member, we are ready to consider any new evidence that may be submitted.
