§ Mr. Shersby
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make an estimate of the likely cost to the food industry of carrying out the tests recommended by the committee on toxicity of chemicals in food, consumer products and the environment in its report on enzymes, July 1981, on all microbially produced enzyme preparations classified in group B.
§ Mrs. Fenner
It is not possible to assess the costs at present because a suitable biological screening test has not yet been developed. Work on this is proceeding in consultation with the industry.
