Financial Services (Regulation of Derivatives) — New Clause 19 — Regulation of food labelling and content — 15 Mar 2011 at 22:00

Jo Swinson MP, East Dunbartonshire voted with the majority (No).

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

I hesitate to introduce an element of gravity to the proceedings, given some of the entertainment that has featured so far. Over the past few hours, however, there has been much debate on issues that did not feature in the Calman report. This issue was dealt with in the report, but it does not feature in the Bill. It featured in the previous Government’s White Paper and is referred to in the Command Paper that accompanies the Bill, but it is one of the issues that appear to have fallen off the edge of the Calman process.

Ayes 136, Noes 311.
