Výživová a zdravotní tvrzení při označování potravin - přidávání vitaminů, minerálních látek a některých dalších látek do potravin

Commissioner, let me begin with a short quotation from a letter I received recently from a company which employs more than 100 people: ‘With great concern we are following the debate on the claims regulation’. The regulation on our desk today will make enterprise more complicated and will increase costs for consumers. Companies will increase prices and the increased prices will harm consumers, consumers whose needs and interests we mention whenever and wherever we can.

Mr President, it is very late at night for such a serious debate and the Commissioner must be tired. I should like to make just a few points which might freshen up the debate, or perhaps make you even more tired, Commissioner!

At the beginning of today’s debate I thought that it might be just an ideological clash between protectionism and an attempt to liberalise the market in services. I admit that I was a dreamer. Unfortunately it is more serious than that: the debate over the watered-down directive is beginning to bear the hallmarks of a clash between the new and the old.
