HL Deb 22 March 1999 vol 598 cc138-40WA
Lord Harris of Haringey

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action is being taken to control pesticide residues in baby foods. [HL1561]

Lord Donoughue

Agreement was reached last week on two new EC directives which impose stringent limits on the levels of pesticides in infant formulae and baby foods. These measures will enhance existing controls and provide even greater protection for the health of this vulnerable group of the population.
