  161.  Mr. Callely  Information on Ivor Callely  Zoom on Ivor Callely   asked the Minister for Health  Information on John F. O'Connell  Zoom on John F. O'Connell   if he will increase the amount a person who breaches Food Hygiene Regulations 1950-1989, can be fined in order to ensure that such fines reflect the seriousness of the crime.

Minister for Health (Dr. O'Connell): Information on John F. O'Connell  Zoom on John F. O'Connell  The maximum fine for infringements of the Food Hygiene Regulations was increased from £100 to £1,000, with £100 a day for a continuing offence with effect from 31 December 1991. I am satisfied that this tenfold increase reflects the seriousness of the offence and that a further increase would not be warranted at this time.
