Welsh Affairs Committee 'concern' over horsemeat

The Welsh Affairs Committee says it is 'concerned' following news that horsemeat has reportedly been found in a batch of mince produced by a supplier in Wales.

The Food Standards Agency and police are leading an investigation into this serious matter and the Committee does not want to jeopardise those investigations. We will pay close attention to how the situation develops. The Committee stands ready to conduct its own investigation if necessary.
