Motion text

That this House expresses its concern that, despite the recent welcome amendment of Article 4, the EU Food Supplements Directive will lead to an over-restrictive regulation of food supplements resulting in many popular and important substances with a long history of safe use not being available in the United Kingdom; particularly notes that the use of reference intakes of vitamins and minerals for the population are likely to lead to an inappropriately low upper safety level; and calls on the Government vigorously to defend United Kingdom consumers' and manufacturers' interests.
