GM dialogue statement
Ministers have confirmed to the Food Standards Agency that the GM (genetic modification) dialogue project will not continue in its current format.
The details of the Government’s policy on the use of GM technology in food and agriculture are still being determined and any future public engagement will be an element of this.
The GM dialogue project was being co-ordinated by the Food Standards Agency following a request by the previous Government, with the aim of discussing consumers’ views of the risks and benefits of GM. Following the change in Government, Ministers had been asked if they wanted to continue with this project.
