Sue Garside of Holland and Barrett hands Sir George a Petition signed by over a thousand customers of the health food store in Andover.
"There is real concern that regulations from Europe might ban certain supplements that have been freely available in this country. I am in touch with Ministers about this, so they can be in no doubt about the strength of feeling on this issue locally."
"There is no evidence that these supplements are harmful; and considerable evidence that they have helped a large number of people. In these circumstances, my view is that people should be free to choose whether to use them."
