§ Mr. Ian Stewart
To ask the Secretary of State for Health by what date the Food and Drink Federation has told him that it expects to complete its review of the purpose and usage of sodium; and what timetable the Government have set for the food and drink industries to achieve a considerable reduction in the salt content of processed food. 
§ Yvette Cooper
We understand that the Food and Drink Federation is expected to complete its review by the end of the year. Once the report is available, we propose to explore with the FDF the scope for reducing the levels of salt in processed foods.
