Planned to coincide with our legal action against the EU Food Supplements Directive on 25 January is a cross-Party Early Day Motion in the UK Parliament. UK citizens should email their MPs BEFORE the 25th. See call to action below.
URGENT - ACTION NEEDED THIS WEEKEND BY UK CITIZENS Please pass on this message to your friends – distribute as widely as you can to UKcontacts
We are sending this message to seek your urgent assistance with the campaign to stop the EU Food Supplements Directive's proposed ban on 75% of vitamin and mineral forms, found in some 5000 products currently sold in UK health stores and via practitioners.
We will be in the European Court in Luxembourg on 25 January defending our landmark case to overturn the ban.
On the same evening of our case, this coming Tuesday, to coincide with the legal action being taken in Luxembourg, Conservative MP Chris Grayling and Labour MP Kate Hoey will lead a cross-Party effort to force the Government to renegotiate the Directive and end the threat to most bioavailable forms of vitamins and minerals in the UK.
The Opposition have given up half a day of the time allocated to them for this debate, and it will provide an opportunity for MPs to vote against the Directive and to instruct the Government to go back to Brussels and renegotiate its provisions.
We need your help. We need to put as much pressure on MPs as possible to vote with us on Tuesday. Please can you send an email to your own MP at Westminster over the weekend or before Tuesday lunchtime urging them to back the motion - EDM 414 -and to oppose the Directive.
The email address for MPs works in the following way: the surname and the initial followed by @parliament.uk. So John Reid, the Health Secretary's email address would be [email protected] and the Junior Minister involved, Melanie Johnson's would be [email protected].
You might like to send an email to both of them as well.
Please give us your help. The Alliance for Natural Health, and its collaborating organisations in Europe and around the world, are in the last-chance saloon for leading-edge food (dietary) supplements. We have to get the UK Government - who are opposing our case in teh European Court -to listen.
And if they won't, we need to let them know how angry we are.
