Gm Food

EDM number 383 in 2007-08, proposed by David Drew on 26/11/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Agriculture, Consumers, Food and Organic farming.

That this House notes the concern over the amount of genetically modified animal feed used in dairy and pig farming; acknowledges that concerns have been raised over labelling of products, such as milk and meat, as GM-free when the animals were reared using GM products; understands that the only food standard that guarantees non-GM involvement is organic; and calls on the Government to review food labelling criteria and introduce requirements to give consumers an informed choice between GM and GM-free foods.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs.
