HC Deb 10 July 1996 vol 281 c244W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what consumer research he has commissioned into consumer preference for beef marked as of British origin in fast food outlets. [35709]

Mrs. Browning

The Government do not undertake consumer research of that nature. However, I understand that the Meat and Livestock Commission, with which we are in close contact, does carry out consumer research into consumers' preferences about the origin of beef products.
