Which? responds to amendment to Agriculture Bill being passed in the House of Lords

Sue Davies, Head of Consumer Protection and Food Policy and Which?, said:

“It is good to see that the House of Lords has recognised the need for iron-clad legislation to ensure future food imports and trade deals do not undermine decades worth of progress, or risk food produced to inferior standards ending up on the menu in schools, hospitals or on supermarket shelves.

“It is vital that the government and MPs now accept this amendment into the Agriculture Bill, so consumers have the reassurance they need that the UK’s food standards will be maintained for years to come.”
