§ Mr. Shersby
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he has any plans to submit further proposals for food regulations covering nutritional labelling and misleading claims and descriptions; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Fenner:
The Food Labelling Regulations 1980, which come into full effect on 1 January 1983, will control a number of descriptions, and will require nutritional information on the labels of foods for particular nutritional uses. I intend to issue shortly revised proposals for regulations covering certain claims made for foodstuffs and all interested parties will be given an opportunity to comment.
