Chlorinated chicken, hormone-injected beef - perhaps not the most appetising menu.

But Parliament is currently debating what our food may look like in the future. And farmers in the region are warning that trade deals with other countries could be catastrophic unless we protect welfare and safety standards.

The concern - say groups including the NFU - is not just the health of the animals but that of consumers.

Chlorine itself - according to the Government - does not pose a health risk to humans. But scientists, including a team at the University of Southampton, have found that it does not kill germs completely - including listeria and salmonella.

But Jamie Oliver is not convinced - backing an NFU petition calling for imported food to meet the same standards as that produced in the UK.

"It's things like pesticides, herbicides, that are banned for good reason. Things like the misuse of antibiotics, which is a massive deal, the use of hormones in meat production."

Tom Martin farms in Haddon near Peterborough. Does he worry that cheap imports will undercut British famers? Should rules here be relaxed to allow them to compete?

We are a passionate, proud industry. I can't see any farmers wanting to take what we see as a step backwards. What I can see is us not receiving the money, the payback that allows us to invest for the future and allows us to keep going as a going concern. And to allow us to care for the environment as we do today. It's impossible to be green if you're in the red and so our industry needs the investment that it gets from the British public buying British food."

To grow, says Tom, and to thrive. Upholding standards vital not only to protect the farming industry but to keep the confidence of the consumer.
