Subject: UK Vote Thursday on Statutory Instrument That Threatens Harmonization to EU - What You Can Do

IAHF List: See the update below my comments from Paul Taylor of the UK.

On Thursday the UK House of Commons Standing Committee on Health will vote on whether or not to approve the Standing Instrument that harmonizes their vitamin law to the mindlessly restrictive EU Dictate known as the "Food Supplements Directive."

Although the House of Lords voted 132 to 79 against the Standing Instrument in a motion intended not to annull, but only to express dissatisfaction, the Standing Committee will just ignore them.

In an effort to screw the people of England, the dictating Labor Party plans to totally change the membership of the Committee only hours before the vote because they know we've been lobbying the current 12 members.

Due to the fact that the EU Food Supplement Directive threatens consumers world wide due to how it threatens to push through a mindlessly restrictive vitamin standard at Codex, consumers world wide- especially people in England should write to all 400 + MPs (see email addresses listed below) to complain about the Labor Parties oily tactics (of changing the committee members only hours before the vote, and to protest the Food Supplements Directive in general, complaining that it threatens your access to supplements you want to buy. Use your own words, and tell them you intend to donate to the ANH lawsuit to overturn the Food Supplement Directive.

Hi John

We won the vote in the House of Lords last night. The motion was carried by 132 votes to 79. Perhaps not surprisingly though there does not appear to be anything about this on the BBC this morning, either BBC TV News or on the BBC News website.

Because the House of Lords motion (put forward by Earl Howe) was not an annulling motion, it will not prevent the Government from implementing the Statutory Instrument that will translate the Food Supplement Directive into UK law. What it will do however is send a strong signal to the Government. The Government are however at liberty to ignore the result of the Lords vote - which they probably will, at least for now.

The 16 members of the Standing Committee hold the real power on this issue, and will decide on Thursday 3rd July whether or not the UK implements the Statutory Instrument that will translate the Food Supplement Directive into UK law. If the Standing Committee vote to implement the legislation, which they probably will, we must file papers to implement the legal challenge by mid August.

The Lords vote is however being reported at (See link at and at (See link at

Kind regards
