Letter: GM pollution peril

Letter: GM pollution peril

Sir: Your report "Blair wrong on GM crops" (20 May) claimed that ministers have approached the National Consumer Council to seek their endorsement of the Government's position. This was not the case. The National Consumer Council is an independent body and while we are happy to be approached by anyone seeking support for their policies, we can give that support only if those policies agree with our established views. NCC has a clear policy on GM foods and specifically on labelling. The NCC cannot be wooed by government.
