§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations he has received about the proposed bread and flour regulations; and if he is proposing to allow the addition of chemicals to wholemeal flour for bread making.
§ Mrs. Fenner
Proposals for new bread and flour regulations were issued for public comment in April, and would allow certain additives in wholemeal bread but not in wholemeal flour for retail sale. The Government have received comments both for and against the proposals, and these will be carefully considered before any final decision is taken.
