Labour demands more meat testing

Labour today called for faster and more extensive testing on meat imports in a bid to stamp out problems which caused the horsemeat scandal.

Shadow Environment Secretary Mary Creagh condemned the Government for breaking up the food standards regime.

She said every time processed meat moved there was a "moment of risk" of potential illicit contamination.

The Opposition Day debate in the Commons came as more cases emerged of horse meat being missold in processed food sold by British retailers.
