HC Deb 25 June 1997 vol 296 c551W
Mr. Paice

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what studies her Department has carried out on the consumer safety aspect of the importation of genetically engineered corn. [5169]

Mr. Rooker

I have been asked to reply.

I take it that the hon. Member is referring to the genetically modified (GM) maize currently being imported into the European Union from the USA, in which case I refer him to the reply given to him about the safety of GM maize earlier today.
