HC Deb 25 June 1998 vol 314 c606W
Mr. Maclean

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what initiatives the Government have taken to promote National Food Safety Week on 8 to 14 June. [47217]

Mr. Rooker

The Government regard National Food Safety Week, organised by the Food and Drink Federation, as a valuable way of promoting public health messages on food hygiene. I was pleased to launch the campaign, and in addition, the Government provided financial support. National Food Safety Week is distinct from the Government's own publicity initiatives on food safety. About £1.5m is committed by the Department each year on publicity material and media campaigns.
