Health: Food Supplements and Herbal Remedies

Volume 696: debated on Monday 26 November 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What assessment they have made of the annual cost to the Exchequer of low-value consignment relief available to businesses based in the Channel Islands for the import into the United Kingdom of food supplements and herbal remedies that contain illegal ingredients or are marketed with illegal claims; and what steps they intend to take to ensure that HM Revenue and Customs addresses this issue. [HL416]

No estimate has been made. HM Revenue and Customs continues to enforce its border controls to prevent the import of prohibited goods.
