Sir: We are told that some apples and oranges have high levels of harmful organophosphate pesticides.

Surely the Government should advise us of which countries are supplying the harmful fruit and which varieties are affected. Then we could choose fruit from countries which use less pesticide.

Or is this another example of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food putting the interests of the food producers above consumer health?
