Salt Intake

EDM number 558 in 1999-00, proposed by Kerry Pollard on 23/03/2000.

That this House believes that the salt intake of people in the United Kingdom is too high, leading to raised blood pressure which in turn is responsible for increasing the number of strokes and heart attacks, the two commonest causes of death in the United Kingdom; is aware that three-quarters of people's salt intake currently comes from salt contained in processed food; acknowledges that some major food retailers like Sainsbury's, Asda, Co-op and Marks and Spencer and food manufacturers like Heinz and Kellogg's have announced reductions in the salt content of some of their own-brand foods of between 10 per cent and 25 per cent; and calls on the Government proactively to encourage the rest of the food industry, including manufacturers, retailers, restaurateurs and caterers, to reduce the salt content of their food by a similar amount.

This motion has been signed by a total of 61 MPs.
