Motion text

That this House calls for the improvement of public sector food; believes that legal health, environmental and social standards for the 2 billion of public sector food purchased each year could transform the way that food is purchased and consumed in the UK; believes food served in schools, hospitals, care homes, national and local government, the armed forces and all other public organisations throughout the country paid for by taxpayers should be good for people's health and should solve rather than create environmental and social problems; calculates that significant benefits would be achieved by introducing legal standards for better public sector food, including tackling diet-related ill-health and climate change caused by the food system investing public money in local economies, rural communities and the best of British farming, creating a sustainable future for endangered seafood and supporting the best of the British fishing industry and protecting the welfare of animals in the food system; and therefore supports in principle the Public Bodies (Sustainable Food) Bill which seeks the statutory introduction of health, environmental and social standards included in a Code for Sustainable Food.
