§ Mr. Fisher
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans he has to restrict the use of non-nutritive additives in confectionery and other foods intended for young children.
§ Mr. Ryder
The Food Advisory Committee is in process of sending me further advice on the use of colouring matter in food in the light of public comments on its published report on this matter. I shall be making an announcement of my conclusions on this in due course. The committee is also currently examining the use of additives in food specially prepared for babies and young children and will report to me when that review is concluded.
