Genetically Modified varieties
The Government set out its policy on the commercial cultivation of GM crops in a Statement to Parliament in March 2004. The Government has concluded that there is no scientific case for a blanket ban on the cultivation of GM crops in the UK, but that proposed uses need to be assessed for safety on a case-by-case basis.
