§ Dame Peggy Fenner
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will expedite progress on determining a food standard requirement for ice glaze thickness on shellfish.
§ Mr. Donald Thompson
Earlier this year the Food Advisory Committee recommended in its report on coated and ice-glazed fish products, that all glazed fish products should bear an indication of net weight of fish core prior to glazing. An announcement on the Government's reaction to this and the other recommendations in the report will be made once consideration of comments received during the period of public consultation has been completed.
