recipe for a

fairer world

BY CHRISTINA FARRELL

THE WOMAN who advanced the cause of sticky toffee puddings and taught a nation how to cook has offered her high profile support to the Trade Justice Campaign launched today across Britain.

TV cook Delia Smith joins thousands of other campaigners who will be lobbying their MPs to demand equal trade rights for third world nations, Miss Smith whose TV and book series "How to Cook" were inspired by a Catholic priest asking for home cooking tips said: "I'm scaling up for Trade Justice on June 28 — when thousands of people across the country will be bringing out their kitchen scales to symbolise fair trade for small-scale farmers around the world."

The campaign which is being co-ordinated by a coalition of 40 NG0s, including the Catholic aid agency Cafod, is at a crucial stage. In September the World Trade Organisation (WTO) will meet in Cancun, Mexico to define trade agreements, organisers say political pressure applied now could make a difference.

A spokeswoman for Cafod said : 'We want to put the spotlight on our Government's hypocrisy."
