Food: Labelling

Volume 696: debated on Wednesday 5 December 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they intend to vote against any proposed food labelling scheme which would ban “made in Britain” labels and institute instead a “made in the EU” label. [HL620]

There have been claims in the press that the European Union wants to ban food labels that say “made in Britain”. The European Commission has confirmed that there is no basis to this story.
