Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of RASOOL) (Claimant) v TOWER BRIDGE MAGISTRATES' COURT (Defendant) & LAMBETH LONDON BOROUGH COUNCIL (Interested Party) (2013)

PUBLISHED November 7, 2013

Registration of a limited company as a food business operator of a premises as required by a local authority was not determinative of who was in fact responsible for complying with hygiene regulations and a person identifiable as being in control of the premises was correctly convicted of breaches of the Food Hygiene (England) Regulations 2006 where it was uncontested that he had been running the premises even though the local authority had sent improvement notices to the company.
