Motion text

That this House notes with concern that research by scientists at Newcastle University has shown that DNA from genetically-modified foods has been able to transfer into the human gut; recognises that the potential for transferring antibiotic resistance, used as marker genes in GM crops, could then seriously compromise natural resistance and immune systems; and calls for the immediate suspension of use of all GM Crops and products currently using antibiotic resistant marker genes.
