Food hygiene rating debate


Assembly Members voted unanimously on 22 January 2013 to introduce a new Welsh law that will make it compulsory for food outlets in Wales to display their food hygiene rating scores.

The scheme already exists on a voluntary basis.

Opposition party amendments on a range of issues were defeated.

These included matters such as whether food hygiene ratings should be published on websites or leaflets.

However, many of the details about the implementation of the scheme will be revisited by AMs when regulations are introduced for consultation in the spring.

The Food Hygiene Ratings (Wales) Bill now awaits Royal assent.
