HC Deb 18 October 1982 vol 29 c35W
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.
