European Food Supplements Directive - action required

Posted by Helena [2171.1544] on January 21, 2005 at 12:24:16:

Hi Dr Stoll,

I do hope you don't mind if I post this here for all your British readers to take action.

I have received the following email today with the request that I pass on the message. It is vital that we write to all MPs before Tuesday, urging them to back Motion 414 and to oppose the European Food Supplements Directive.

Thanks, Helena


URGENT - YOU MUST ACT THIS WEEKEND

URGENT - ACTION NEEDED THIS WEEKEND

Please pass on this message to your friends.

From Carole Caplin and Jenny Seagrove.

We are sending this message to seek your urgent assistance with our campaign to stop the impending ban of many vitamin tablets as a result of the controversial European Food Supplements Directive.

On Tuesday evening, 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 our minerals. 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 to make sure ALL MPs E-MAIL BOXES ARE FULL ON MONDAY & TUESDAY. 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-414 and to oppose the Directive.

The e-mail address for most 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 reidj@parliament.uk and the Junior Minister involved, Melanie Johnson's would be johnsonm@parliament.uk.

You might like to send an email to both of them as well.

If that doesn’t work, and you’re not sure of the constituency or the name of your MP, you can find this out by visiting www.locata.co.uk/commons

If you are a Brit now living in Europe, you can still help! You can e-mail the MP in the place where you last lived in the UK – and you can certainly e-mail Melanie Johnson and John Reid.

Please give us your help. We are in the last-chance saloon for many of our vitamin tablets. We have to get the Government to listen - and if they won't, we need to let them know how angry we are.

Thank you and very best wishes

Carole and Jenny.

Hi Helena:

It would have been nice to have seen the British board members interested in this post. It's so important for all of us worldwide to have access to supplements and all forms of alternative medicine. Sadly, many don't realize that there are government groups working feverishly to prevent our having access to anything non-allopathic.

Hi PhillyLady,

Thanks for your reply. I've posted that message on three other forums and have had just two other replies, one saying an email had just be sent, the other asking for more details - hadn't helped that I'd forgotten to include the website details, but even so! So many people here don't seem to realise what is about to happen.

Helena

Hi Helena:

No, many people don't realize what is happening. That's why it's important to tell them....over and over:-)
