HC Deb 18 March 1957 vol 567 c3W
55. Mr. G. Darling

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware of the lack of uniformity in enforcement of food hygiene regulations by local authorities; and what he is doing to improve the position.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

There is a great variety of local circumstances in trades and premises and complete uniformity cannot be expected. I will always make inquiries where it appears that widely differing requirements are being unnecessarily imposed in parallel circumstances. But differences about interpretation in particular cases can only be finally settled by the courts.

If the hon. Member has any particular case in mind, perhaps he would like to draw it to my right hon. Friend's attention.
