Motion text

That this House notes the Government's approval in principle for one variety of GM crop but deplores its complete failure to produce the necessary rules on cross-contamination between GM and non-GM crops; believes that issues of liability for cross-contamination must be resolved before any further approval is given; believes that all future GM crop trials and any other GM planting must be carried out in accordance with such rules and liabilities; and believes that all consumers must be able to choose whether to eat the produce of GM crops through clear labelling of all foods containing GM ingredients.
