I'm getting the feeling the tide is about to turn in the GM debate in Europe;

>The European Parliament has approved proposals to tighten restrictions on
>the use of genetically modified (GM) products.
>The new measures include the strict labelling and monitoring of GM foods,
>feeds, seeds and pharmaceuticals.
>They also set up a public registry, which will allow consumers to trace
>The move paves the way for the EU to lift its three-year moratorium on
>licensing new GM products.

While it might look like a strict provision, it is just the kind of thing
that is needed to reassure the undecided public and emasculate the greenies.

Plus it gets the licensing ban lifted.
