HC Deb 31 January 1969 vol 776 cc403-4W
Mr. Bessell

asked the Minister of Transport what conditions, in respect of cleanliness, are included in leases granted by his Department to operators of service areas on motorways where food is sold to the general public; and if he will publish details of such conditions.

Mr. Marsh

There is a general requirement that lessees shall operate their facilities, including catering, to the Minister's satisfaction. The form of the other requirements, which differ slightly in some leases, is:—

  1. (a) "to keep the premises clean tidy neat and in good working order and condition….
  2. (b) "to provide on the premises a reasonable number of litter bins of a type approved by the Council of Industrial Design. …"
  3. (c) "not to retain any waste waste oil refuse or other rubbish on the premises and not to dispose of the same on the premises except 404 by a method approved in writing by the Minister."

Public Health legislation is applicable to service areas.
