British Genetically Modified Crop Plan

Filed under: Food, Government Regulations — Cat @ 4:55 pm

The Guardian reports that the British Government has released a consultation paper on the use of genetically modified crops in Britain. In the consultation paper (which I haven’t read) there are:

“… plans for a series of measures it says would ensure genetically modified crops could be introduced safely to Britain in the future and coexist with other crops”

Unsurprisingly, Friends of the Earth are against the introduction of genetically modified food into Britain.

At the same time, the Beeb reports that the government has rejected the idea of having no spray zones around the edge of fields where pesticides are used. This is against the recommendation of the report from the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution.
