Lords Land Use Committee hears evidence on food strategy in England
The Committee holds its eighteenth evidence session of its Land Use in England inquiry. In this evidence session it will hear from Henry Dimbleby, the lead on the National Food Strategy, co-author of the school food plan, and co-founder of Leon restaurant. The committee will hear evidence on the government’s food strategy, where it has been successful and where it needs to be improved.
Possible Questions Include:
- What assessment would you make of the Government’s food strategy? What do you think it gets right? Alternatively, are there any missed opportunities?
- What has been the response to the three-compartment model and has your thinking moved on this since the Food Strategy Report was published?
- Should we be growing food to suit people’s diets or changing our diet to suit what we grow?
- How joined up is government when it comes to food and agriculture and land use policy and decision making?
