Please would you send me word documents or PDF\\\'s of all Food Hygiene Inspections on retail premises in Shetland carried out between either 2008 and 2010 indicating which if any actions are to be taken by the owners to remedy any breaches in food safety law, and what rating they were given?

Dear Shetland Islands Council,

1. To clarify, I would like copies of the reports that you sent to those premises after the inspection was made, detailing the score and areas that need improvement.

2. Are you intending to subscribe to the Food Hygiene Information Scheme in Scotland, and if so when?

3. I would also like information on any Hygiene Improvement Notices and Hygiene Emergency Prohibition Notices served (if any) in Lerwick in 2009 or 2010.

Yours faithfully,

Caroline Braithwaite

Hello Caroline

We have received you FOI request and wish for some clarification.

Do you wish for the schedule from the report, which details the legal
requirements to be complied with, sent or do you require any other documents,
such as cover letters, etc. This is a very small team and will cause
additional amount of work for our staff so it is vital to understand your
request properly.

Also, can you confirm the exact dates you wish reports for please?

Regards

Dear Shetland Islands Council,

Thank you Dawn for your quick reply. I would only like the schedules from the reports written in 2009 or 2010 in Shetland, but would like to know the premises that they refer to. I am only need those for food retail premises, not feedstuffs or care establishments.

Yours faithfully,
