The Bill passed through the House of Commons unamended and with the government resolute in speedily pushing through with the minimum of scrutiny. Its own Regulatory Policy Committee has twice rejected Defra’s Impact Assessment as not fit for purpose. Defra has chosen to ignore this report. Possibly an unprecedented situation.
The Bill has been through its Second Reading in the House of Lords and will be considered by a Committee of the Whole House next week.
It has been clear to Beyond GM and colleagues that people on all sides of the spectrum of opinion on the technology are unhappy with the Bill.
It is clear that on many grounds the Bill is poor governance and will be an incoherent piece of legislation which will cause many problems. Several Peers across parties raised serious concerns during the HoL Second Reading – including the eminent scientist Lord Winston who was excoriating about the science and Lord Rooker, ex-chair of the FSA, who decried the lack of labelling.
We urge all businesses and individuals to get engaged directly and let Defra and the FSA know that labelling and traceability is essential.
Contact MPs and whichever Peers anyone knows and shake them up.
