asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he is now able to announce his decisions concerning the report on bread and flour by the Food Standards Commitee in relation to the representations made to him by manufacturers, local authorities and the Advertising Inquiry Council on the subject of certain advertising claims by manufacturers of breads and bread substitutes.

I cannot add to the reply I gave the hon. Member for Brixton (Mr. Lipton) on 24th April. This is a long and complicated report and I am sure the House would not want me to come to any decisions without fully considering the views of all the various interests concerned. This must, if justice is to be done, take time and I cannot hold out much hope of being able to make an announcement before the Summer Recess.
