  • A Home Office minister has refused to rule out eating chlorinated chicken if it were sold in the UK after Brexit’s transition period ends.
  • Security minister James Brokenshire did not reject the idea that he would eat chlorine-washed chicken, if authorities in the UK gave it the green light, telling LBC he was “not a food expert”.
  • Asked about the government’s stance on chlorinated chicken during the Sunday morning broadcast round, environment secretary George Eustice stressed the government was committed to high standards for food safety and for animal welfare.
