HC Deb 24 July 1990 vol 177 c209W
Dr. David Clark

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he intends to lay the regulations under the Food Safety Act 1990 that will control the process of food irradiation; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gummer

The first essential step is to arrange for consultations to take place on our proposals. Only when these have been completed and the results assessed will regulations be laid.
