HC Deb 25 November 1999 vol 339 c204W
16. Mr. Bob Russell

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans he has to encourage all those involved in the United Kingdom food industry to label clearly food which originates in the UK. [98852]

Mr. Nick Brown

Consumers have a right to clear and unambiguous labelling of all the food they buy in order to make an informed choice. This is why we are consulting all those involved in the food industry on the need to ensure that origin markings do not mislead consumers when such information is provided.
