Joan Ruddock: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs if she will list GM products which may be imported into the UK; and in which countries each is grown prior to export. 
Mr. Morley [holding answer 28 June 2004]: The crops in the following table were approved for placing on the market under Directive 90/220/EC (Directive 2001/18's predecessor). As far as we are aware the countries listed in the third column of the table have approval to cultivate these crops but we do not know for certain whether crops are grown there for export to the EU. This information has been taken from the AGBIOS database which can be accessed on their website at www.agbios.com/dbase.php.
