§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what guidelines he proposes to issue to food companies regarding policy on the future use of food additives.
§ Mrs. Fenner
[pursuant to her reply, 2 July 1986]: I have no plans at present to issue specific guidelines to food companies regarding policy on the future use of food additives. The use of these substances is controlled by the Food Act 1984 and through specific regulations made under that Act and is based on the advice of expert committees and, where appropriate, implements Community controls.
