Stop food safety 'harmonisation'

FOLLOWING recent food scandals, people are much more aware of what goes into our food. The last thing we need is lower legal standards. However, a EU-US trade deal aims to 'harmonise' European and American rules in food safety, which may mean slashing European standards to match much lower US levels.

The deal threatens our ability to run our society in the way we choose. It must be stopped.
