HC Deb 08 March 1990 vol 168 c840W
29. Mr. Michael Brown

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what measures are being taken to provide more information concerning the ingredients in animal feed.

Mr. Maclean

A recent amendment to the European Community directive on the marketing of mixed feeds will oblige manufacturers to declare the materials used, though further work is necessary within the Community before this provision can be implemented by the member states.

The present regulations already permit manufacturers to give full information about ingredients and farmers who want this information should seek it from their suppliers.
