HC Deb 20 October 1994 vol 248 c329W
Mr. Simon Coombs

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what evaluation he has made of the potential for deregulation in food safety.

Mrs. Browning

Our food law deregulation plan involves taking a critical look at all existing regulations. We have already said that this will not undermine proper requirements for food safety and consumer protection but there will undoubtedly be opportunities for updating or simplification.
