Food hygiene issues still running

There has been quite a bit of media and talk back interest in the food hygiene story. I have made some comments in interviews today about the need for more disclosure of information on such an important public health issue as whether those who handle our food comply with the regulatory standards.

If I survive the cutting room, some of this might be aired tonight at 6.30pm on Channel 9's "A Current Affairs".

Just by complete chance, the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island on Monday this week, fell into line with some of the major cities of the world, and announced it will put restaurant inspection records online starting later this year. The decision comes after a two year battle by CBC News, and a successfull appeal to the province's Freedom of Information Commissioner to have the inspection records released.

Today, Blacktown City Council and Prince Edward Island Province.

Tomorrow, all of New South Wales and Australia's other states and territories?
