HC Deb 10 March 1986 vol 93 cc355-6W
Mr. Murphy

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what recent representation he has received advocating compulsory nutritional labelling; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gummer

We have received a number of representations advocating compulsory nutrition labelling of food. We are currently seeking comments on proposals to make the labelling of total and saturated fats compulsory, and on draft guidelines for voluntary wider nutrition labelling.
