§ Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Which department is co-ordinating government policy on on-product environmental claims. [HL3058]
§ Lord Whitty
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has overall responsibility for promoting a good standard of environmental information in on-product claims. The Department of Trade and Industry is responsible for the consumer protection regimes under which action can be taken against false or misleading claims. The two departments work closely together on the development of policy across this area.
