Motion text

That this House celebrates the clean green status of Scotland’s £14 billion food and drink sector and recognises that such high standards have been achieved by implementing key directives within an EU framework; recognises this status as a vital element which underpins the value of the provenance of Scottish food nationally and internationally; highlights that the UK Internal Market Act could threaten Scotland’s ability to maintain and protect this internationally recognised and respected marque; and asserts that any UK Government attempt to undermine or impede Scottish regulation of GM crops or editing techniques must never be allowed to destabilise the value or reputation of Scotland-branded export produce.
