§ Mr. McAvoy
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what progress has been made in the review of the Food Act 1984; and when he expects consultations to be concluded.
§ Mr. Donald Thompson
Following my announcement in October last year officials have held informal discussions with organisations affected by our proposals to review the food Acts on the outstanding issues that need to be decided in the detail of the revisions.
The consultations are continuing but are expected to be completed by late summer.
