§ Mr. Colvin
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will consider making it compulsory for agricultural merchants to put the ingredients of animal feedingstuffs on the bags.
§ Mr. Donald Thompson
The EC directive which governs the labelling of feedingstuffs is currently under review in an EC expert committee. While this exercise is in progress we have no plans to alter United Kingdom legislative provisions in respect of ingredient listing.
