Consumers, retailers and small manufacturers will be damaged by the Government’s approval of a “draconian” EU directive which could see thousands of common food supplements and vitamins banned.
Ministers were motivated by “a determination to follow the harmonisation agenda across Europe at all costs”, Tory spokesman on nutrition Chris Grayling said.
Opening an Opposition half-day debate on the directive, Mr Grayling said the Government “wants us to drink alcohol at all hours but does not want us to take vitamin tablets”.
He added: “I can’t see why the Government is so blatantly ignoring the wishes of the people of this country.”
