European Ban On Higher Potency Vitamins And Minerals
That this House notes that the recently published minutes of the 30 April 2012 meeting of the EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health record that many Member States are pressing the European Commission to bring forward the setting of maximum permitted levels for vitamins and minerals in food supplements; recalls that on every previous occasion this project has been commenced it has threatened the continued availability of many safe and popular food supplements used by millions of British consumers to help them achieve and maintain good health; observes that such products are already regulated by the Food Safety Act and that no further legislation is necessary; further notes that successive Governments have robustly resisted such moves to restrict consumer choice and have so defended the interests of specialist manufacturers and retailers; and invites the Secretary of State to reassure the House that he, his Ministers and his officials will do all within their power to prevent such unnecessary and burdensome meddling in British markets.
