Lord Rooker – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Department of Health

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lord Rooker on 2015-11-02.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they plan to review the Teratology Society recommendation regarding mandating folic acid fortification in Europe.

Lord Prior of Brampton

We have not formally reviewed the 2015 Obeid paper but officials are aware of its conclusions which are in line with information already considered by Ministers.

The recommendation in the Teratology Society in essence repeats current advice on folic acid supplements. There are no plans to review this advice.
