FSA should not be abolished12th July 2010
The charity NI Heart Chest and Stroke has said the government should not respond to pressure from food companies to scrap the Food Standards Agency.
The charity's chief executive, Andrew Dougal said: "It makes no sense to abolish a major line of defence against unhealthy eating. It's like asking the tobacco manufacturers to run No Smoking Day. At the same time appoint the crisp and chocolate manufacturers as guardians of dietary advice to the nation".
