§ Dr. David Clark
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what advice he intends to give to local authorities about the supply of irradiated food in schools; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Fallon
No specific guidance on the use of irradiated food in schools is being issued. In common with all other catering establishments, local education authorities which choose to use irradiated products will be required so to inform consumers under the Food Labelling (Amendment) (Irradiated Food) Regulations 1990.
