Food: Supplements

Volume 699: debated on Thursday 28 February 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Lord Davies of Oldham on 8 January—WA 196whether they will assess the impact upon the United Kingdom market of the import from the Crown Dependencies of food supplements and herbal remedies which, if placed directly on the United Kingdom market, would be illegal by virtue either of their composition or of the claims made about them. [HL1688]

The private nature of transactions involved in the personal import of food supplements and herbal remedies from the Crown Dependencies by mail order means that it is not currently possible to collate the information necessary to assess the impact on the United Kingdom market of such imports.
