LIBERAL Democrats yesterday called for a five-year ban on genetically modified (GM) food to allow more research into its impact on the environment.

The conference proposed an EU-wide moratorium and demanded clearer labelling of GM products. Among other environmental measures, delegates urged an Environmental Responsibility Act, requiring the inclusion of a "green chapter" in the Budget.
