In case you haven't seen this from the UB website. It appears on the DAIRY FREE list (below) Watch out for temporary changes to labelling and ingredients.
Dair free list (http://www.unitedbiscuits.co.uk/80256C1A0047922E/vWeb/pcKEYL5DXFHU)

Due to this, some products have been removed from the vegan list (temporarily I think)
See here (http://www.unitedbiscuits.co.uk/80256C1A0047922E/vWeb/pcKEYL5DXFEJ) for the vegan list
I'm not sure if this is a UK only thing.. best check your local supply.

I noticed this recently- that they had taken hobnobs off the vegan list but I think that they are still vegan.

Better be, I just put 2 packets!

That's exactly how I found it; hobnob-driven. I think you're right - they are just listed as "produced on a line handling Dairy ingredients"
