Mr. Hamling

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what hygiene regulations are laid down by his Department concerning the opening of eating places in London; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Alison

Catering premises are subject to the requirements of the Food Hygiene (General) Regulations, 1960, which are designed to protect the consumer by ensuring that food is kept and handled under hygienic conditions and that the premises, equipment and facilities for keeping clean are satisfactory. Revised Regulations were laid on 18th August to come into operation on 1st March next.
