"If the International Trade Secretary wants the public to trust him, he needs to take the opportunity while he's in the USA and devour a chlorine-washed chicken live on camera", said Mr McGrory.

Senior EU figures have have hit back at Liam Fox's "ignorant and indigestible" claim that lowering United Kingdom food standards to allow the import of chlorinated chicken from the U.S. is an insignificant detail.
