HC Deb 06 February 1986 vol 91 c260W
38. Mr. Ryder

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what action his Ministry has taken in implementing the recommendations of the COMA report.

Mrs. Fenner

Draft proposals for legislation on the labelling of foods with their total and saturated fat contents and revised proposals for voluntary full nutritional labelling of food will be circulated for comment shortly.

In addition, certain changes under the beef and sheep variable premium schemes are designed to encourage the production of lean carcases.
