HC Deb 12 December 1949 vol 470 cc233-4W
92. Mr. C. S. Taylor

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the model by-laws which he has issued to local authorities in England and Wales to ensure cleanliness in the handling, wrapping and delivery of food, he will make an order giving employers the right to insist on bacteriological examination of employees engaged in these businesses

Mr. Blenkinsop

I know of no powers under which such an order could be made.
