Responding UKIP Home Affairs spokeswoman, Diane James MEP said: “I find it disgraceful that an unelected European Commissioner would even consider effectively taking the food from childrens’ mouths and the clothes off their backs.

“This is a logical consequence of being in a political union where EU central regulation and harmonisation is paramount.

“When EU’s desire for uniformity is supreme, it’s clear British children will be the ones to suffer the consequences. It would appear the EU wants to be the Milk Snatcher Supreme.
