§ Mr. Torney
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many local authorities are involved in the provision of poultrymeat hygiene inspection services to processing plants in Great Britain; and whether he will publicise details of all charges advertised under the poultrymeat hygiene regulations by local authorities in respect of poultrymeat hygiene inspection services provided by them during the past 12 months.386W
§ Mrs. Fenner
Ninety five local authorities in Great Britain are providing a poultrymeat inspection service. These authorities are already required, under the Poultry Meat (Hygiene) Regulations 1976 and the Poultry Meat (Hygiene) (Scotland) Regulations 1976, to publish details of their charges in at least one newspaper circulating in their district and in such other manner (if any) as they think expedient for informing persons interested. It is not necessary to hold a central register.
