§ Mr. Shersby
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when it is expected that the EC directive on claims made in the labelling, presentation and advertising of foodstuffs for sale to the ultimate consumer is likely to be implemented in the United Kingdom; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Fenner
This directive is still only in draft and is likely to be the subject of much further discussion before it becomes Community law. I cannot therefore give a date for implementation in the United Kingdom.
