Campaign response - Let’s tell consumers what they’re buying

A number of constituents have written to me over the issue of food labelling.

The early day motion mentioned is not something I will sign – not because I particularly disagree with it but because they rarely achieve anything whilst at the same cost the tax payer significant sums of money.

It is important that any food on sale is clearly labelled. The consumer can then choose. I have raised the matter with Ministers and I hope we will see action on this in due course.
