§ Mr. McQuarrie
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will seek to amend the Food and Drugs (Scotland) Act in order to apply to Scotland the proposals contained in the Food and Drugs (Amendment) Bill at present before the House; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Allan Stewart
We shall observe closely the progress of the Food and Drugs (Amendment) Bill and consider any appropriate action. Certain of its proposals are, however, already covered by Scottish legislation.
