Lord Clement-Jones

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What steps they and the Food Standards Agency intend to take to address the technical and financial issues associated with the production of dossiers for consideration by the European Food Safety Authority in relation to nutrients which are not included in the list of permitted ingredients for use in food supplements set out in Schedules 2 and 3 to the proposed Food Supplements (England) Regulations 2003; and [HL2070]

manufactured before an EC requirement for cylinders to be red came into effect. They would also be labelled as either Halon or BCF', which is the acronym for bromochlorodifluoromethane, the chemical name for Halon 1211.
