To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what recent representations she has received on the subject of food hygiene.

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health takes the lead on the Food Hygiene (General) Regulations 1970, as amended, and the hygiene of foodstuffs directive. This Department does, however, receive representations on food hygiene from time to time.Most recent representations include comments from a cash and carry company about the temperature control requirements and from a large retailer about the European Community's approach to food hygiene legislation.
