DEFRA Proposals for GM Crops to be Grown in the UK
"It is proposed that compliance with statutory requirements will be checked by DEFRA farm inspections also that there will be a Review after 2-3 years to see if these arrangements are satisfactory."
Quotation from Family Farmers Association Magazine.
Vera attended a meeting at the House of Commons of the FFA on February 1st. She says: “There has been no provision if cross-pollination from GM crops contaminates non GM or organic produce."
DEFRA says: “A co-existence regime will help to facilitate the introduction of GM crops.”
Vera says: “Two years ago we held a conference and Dr Sue Mayer of Genewatch gave a lecture on GM crops including those producing drugs etc, which has led to further research both scientific and medical.
This Conference on March 6th is therefore very important. Please attend if you can. Also, please publicise this conference and encourage others to attend. I want the Hall to be FULL!
For those attending: TABLES WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR YOU TO DISPLAY YOUR ORGANISATION’S INFORMATION / PUBLICITY MATERIAL. Please add this request when booking.
A very sincere thank you to all who are coming, and who are publicising this important event. I really do appreciate this help. Bless you.
