In response to the Real Bread Campaign’s latest call for an Honest Crust Act, twelve MPs* from the three largest parties have written to Michael Gove on the issue of improving loaf labelling and marketing legislation.
To date, Mr. Gove has not replied to any of the MPs, the Real Bread Campaign, or even any of the 1500 people who wrote to him personally in late 2017 / early 2018 in response to the previous step in the Honest Crust Act campaign.
Over the parliamentary summer recess, the Real Bread Campaign is following up with the 275 people who took the latest action, to establish which other MPs may support the call for an Honest Crust Act. The Campaign plans to work with supportive MPs to challenge the response from George Eustice, the Minister of State at Defra, to some of the points raised by MPs.
*Dr. David Drew (L, Stroud), Alex Sobel (L, Leeds North West), Sir Desmond Swayne (C, New Forest West) and Thelma Walker (L, Colne Valley) all submitted Parliamentary Questions to Michael Gove, the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
Zac Goldsmith (C, Richmond), John Grogan (L, Keighley), Kevin Hollinrake (C, Thirsk and Malton), Norman Lamb (LD, North Norfolk), Neil Parish (C, Tiverton and Honiton), Ellie Reeves (L, Lewisham West & Penge), Catherine West (L, Hornsey and Wood Green) and Bill Wiggin (C, North Herefordshire) all wrote directly to Mr. Gove.
