Willie Bain MP, Labour's Shadow Food Minister,in response to the collapse of EU discussions on food from cloned animals said:

“The Tory-led Government have let down UK consumers by refusing to back Labour MEPs’ calls for clear labelling for food produced from the offspring of cloned animals. The Government supported a free-market for meat and milk from cloned animals and their off-spring ignoring consumer opinion and many concerns about animal welfare.

“This is yet another broken promise from the Tories whose election manifesto promised honesty in food labelling.”
