Mary Creagh MP, Labour’s Shadow Environment Secretary, said:

“The Government must ensure that catering firms speed up their tests and tell the public what they are testing, so that we know just how far this horse meat scandal has spread through our communities. It is deeply worrying that it has taken Sodexo, who supply schools, hospitals and the Armed Forces, several weeks to test for and discover horse in its beef products.

“Councils, schools and hospitals must have total confidence in their meat suppliers – and the Government’s advice that they should simply ask big catering companies for reassurance is totally ineffective.”
