Food Hygiene Rating Bill backed in Welsh assembly vote


Wales is to become the first part of the UK to force restaurants and cafes to display their hygiene ratings.

Welsh assembly members voted unanimously to introduce a law that will make the ratings compulsory.

The Food Hygiene Ratings (Wales) Bill will now await Royal Assent.

The scheme already works voluntarily, but business leaders have expressed concern over the "scores on the doors" system.

Roger Pinney reports.
