HC Deb 03 April 1996 vol 275 c344W
Mr. George Howarth

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what proposals he has to require food processors and producers to clearly label products which involve the use of beef or beef by-products. [24090]

Mrs. Browning

[holding answer 1 April 1996]: I refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Wakefield (Mr. Hinchliffe) on 2 April 1996, Official Report, columns 196–97.

We have no plans to impose further labelling requirements. Food suppliers may, of course, display additional information in relation to their products, provided that it is true and not misleading.
