HC Deb 03 July 1989 vol 156 cc8-9W
Mr. Ron Davies

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (1) what regulatory provision exists concerning the minimum meat content of pies and other meat products; and if he will make a statement;

(2) whether he will take steps to require food manufacturers to label meat pies and other meat products so that the percentage meat content is clear.

Mr. Ryder

The Meat Products and Spreadable Fish Products Regulations 1984 already require most meat products to bear a clear declaration of their minimum meat content on the label. In addition, they contain minimum meat content requirements for a number of products including meat pies.
