§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what legislation to safeguard health is being considered in respect of blood gel plasma meat products; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Freeman
I refer the hon. Member to the reply that my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food gave the hon. Member for Truro (Mr. Taylor) on 16 February at columns444–46. As with any other food, fitness for human consumption is subject to the Food Act 1984 and regulations made under that Act. There is no need to legislate separately on safety grounds.
