'Buy British' food figures drop
MINISTERS have been accused of showing a lack of leadership by failing to ensure their departments buy British food.

Shadow environment secretary Nick Herbert said it was time for a Government which "cares about British farming" as he pointed to recent figures showing a drop in the amount of homegrown food procured by Whitehall.

Food and farming minister Jim Fitzpatrick conceded there was "room for improvement" but insisted "good progress" was being made on the issue.
