Q+A: Food labelling, Gareth Morgan. David Carter

Q+A
TV ONE, 29TH SEPTEMBER, 9AM

On the programme this Sunday, we look at food labelling. Does it give us the whole picture? And how much do we know about genetically modified ingredients in our food?

And staying with food, Gareth Morgan has investigated obesity and tells us what we need to do to prevent it. Plus we look at how one community is fighting the flab.

And he's referee of the toughest game in town - politics. We talk to the Speaker of the House, David Carter, about keeping MPs in line, and we find out who he thinks are the best performers.

On the panel this week, political scientist Dr Bryce Edwards from Otago University, former ACT MP Heather Roy and Metro editor Simon Wilson.

Join host Susan Wood and Jessica Mutch on Q+A at 9am this Sunday.
