HC Deb 20 June 1996 vol 279 c620W
Dr. Marek

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food at which Council of the European Union he expects the forthcoming draft directive on dietary supplements to be considered; and who will represent the United Kingdom at that Council. [33178]

Mrs. Browning

[holding answer on 17 June 1996]: If the EU Commission tables a draft directive on dietary supplements, we would expect it to be considered at the Internal Market Council. The UK is normally represented at such meetings by the Minister for Competition and Consumer Affairs, but other Ministers may attend if necessary.
