HC Deb 06 March 1986 vol 93 c251W
13. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he plans any new initiatives relating to the use of additives in food.

Mr. Gummer

Strict control of the use of additives in food is already maintained through the provisions in the Food Acts and by regulations made thereunder. Ministers seek the advice of the Food Advisory Committee on a continuing basis about the need, safety and control of food additives.
