    Food safety group starts work

    Food safety group starts work

    THE new joint food safety and standards group has started work as a precursor to the Governments food standards agency. It brings together agriculture and health officials.

    The remit of the Governments proposed food standards agency will be debated at a two-day conference on food safety which begins today at Church House, Westminster, London.

    Prime minister Tony Blair wants it to cover the food chain “from plough to plate”. But ministers have yet to decide several controversial issues, including whether the agency should take over responsibility for the safety of pesticides and animal medicines.

    Franz Fischler, European farm commissioner, will address the conference tomorrow.
