Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill — Clause 14 — Annual Report — Details of Actual or Potential Compromised Food Safety, Hygine or Authenticity — 26 Feb 2013 at 15:58

The majority of MPs voted against requiring the Groceries Code Adjudicator to report on cases which have come to their attention of actual, or potential, compromised food safety, hygiene or authenticity in their annual report.

MPs were considering the Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill[1][2]. The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment 34, page 5, line 31, at end insert—
  • ‘(4A) The report must include details of any incidents that have come to the Adjudicator’s attention during the reporting period in which breaches of the Groceries Code or commercial pressure on retailers have led or may have led to actual or potential cases of compromised—
  • (a) food safety;
  • (b) food hygiene; and
  • (c) food authenticity.’.

Had the amendment not been rejected the above text would have been added to Clause 14[3] of the Bill titled Annual report which set out what the Adjudicator's annual report must contain.
