GM Freeze Welcomes Sainsbury’s Resignation

Immediate release (10 Nov 2006)

Calls Pete Riley 07903 341 065

GM Freeze has welcomed the resignation of Science Minister Lord David Sainsbury today.

Commenting GM Freeze Campaign Director said:

This resignation is long overdue. In 1997 Lord Sainsbury came to the post of Science Minister with a long track record of financial backing for the development of GM crops and has continued to support their development as a Minister responsible for public research funding. It is vital that his successor takes a more balanced approach to funding agricultural research which look at the sustainability of farming systems rather than concentrating on producing GM crops that create as many problems as they claim to solve.
