John West And The Sourcing Of Tuna Fish

EDM number 1747 in 2010-12, proposed by Bob Russell on 26/04/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Fisheries and Service industries.

That this House regrets that food canning company John West continues to source tinned tuna from non-sustainable sources, making it now the only major UK producer to do so; welcomes the decision of Morrisons supermarkets to stop sourcing fish caught with destructive methods; notes that all major UK supermarkets are moving to 100 per cent. sustainability-sourced tuna in their own brand tins, with the decision by Morrisons following on from promises made by Tesco and Asda, Princes, as well as existing commitments from Sainsbury's, Marks and Spencer, Waitrose and the Co-op to stop dangerous fish aggregating devices which kill endangered sharks, rays, turtles, juvenile tuna and other tuna species; and calls on the Government to encourage John West to take immediate steps to fall into line with the rest of the UK retail food industry.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
