HC Deb 25 January 1966 vol 723 cc42-3W
Mr. Abse

asked the Minister of Health whether the Food Hygiene Advisory Council has yet reported on the education of food handlers in food hygiene.

Mr. K. Robinson

Yes. I have just received this Report, for which I am very grateful, and am arranging for its publication in my Department's Monthly Bulletin.

The Report recommends a number of measures to improve food hygiene education and publicity, including the preparation of two short and simple codes for the public and the trade. I accept the recommendations in principle and am now seeking the co-operation of the local authority and trade organisations concerned.
