Iceland boss on attack in horsemeat row

Help

Local councils are to blame for driving down food quality with cheap food contracts for schools and hospitals, the boss of Iceland has suggested.

Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Malcolm Walker said the "problem really lies" with councils buying food from the poorly supplied catering industry.

But the Local Government Association said councils were not to blame for what had been "a major supply chain failure".
