Motion text

That this House understands the public concern caused by the development of genetically modified organisms; notes with concern that proper husbandry guidelines to prevent cross-contamination are still lacking in this country; believes that consumers have the right to choose non-GM foods and that all foods containing GM material, or that come from livestock fed on GM, should be clearly labelled as such; further notes that it is scientifically established that the presence of GM can be traced down to, or close to, 0.1 per cent. and believes that this should be the trigger point for GM labelling; and calls on the Government to ban any commercial planting of GM crops until or unless the science shows that this would be safe for people and the environment, and until or unless issues of liability and crop segregation are resolved.
