Food Supply

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 12 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what recent discussions he has had with ministerial colleagues on the security of the national food supply. (210303)

I have discussed food security, both national and global, regularly with ministerial colleagues in recent months. The UK is more self-sufficient in food supply now than we were at the end of the Second World War, but we do need to respond to changing circumstances. I intend to publish a paper on ensuring Britain's food security later this month.
