37. Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Health if he will announce the first two of a series of official codes of practice on the hygienic handling of food.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health (Miss Edith Pitt)

Yes, Sir. The first two of these codes, dealing with hygiene in the retail meat trade and the hygienic transport and handling of meat, were published on 17th November. I am sending copies to the hon. Member.

Mr. Dodds

Can the hon. Lady state when the next series will be coming out?

Miss Pitt

Yes, Sir. There are two more in preparation in connection with the fish trade. They have been circulated to interested parties and are now being revised in the light of their comments.
