Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations revoke the following instruments—
(a)The Food Standards (General Provisions) Order 1944
(b)The Food Standards (Fish Cakes) Order 1950
(c)The Skimmed Milk with Non-Milk Fat Regulations 1960
(d)The Skimmed Milk with Non-Milk Fat (Scotland) Regulations 1960
(e)The Soft Drinks Regulations 1964
(f)The Soft Drinks (Scotland) Regulations 1964
(g)The Ice-Cream Regulations 1967
(h)The Ice-Cream (Scotland) Regulations 1970
Amending instruments to those revoked and references to them in other instruments (specified in the Schedule) are also revoked.
Both Orders mentioned above were made under regulation 2 of the Defence (Sale of Food) Regulations 1943 and, in relation to Great Britain, were the only Orders made under the said regulation 2 which remained in force. The Food Standards (Fish Cakes) Order 1950 prescribed a compositional standard for fish cakes and compliance with that standard was required by the Food Standards (General Provisions) Order 1944.
The Skimmed Milk with Non-Milk Fat Regulations 1960 and Skimmed Milk with Non-Milk Fat (Scotland) Regulations 1960 imposed requirements in relation to labelling and advertising. The remainder of the Regulations mentioned in the first paragraph above specified compositional standards, imposed requirements as to labelling and, for ice cream, advertising.
Provisions concerning the use of the description “ice-cream” and the description “low calorie” in relation to soft drinks appear in the Food Labelling Regulations 1995.
These Regulations also amend the definition of “ice cream” in the Cocoa and Chocolate Products Regulations 1976 and in the Cocoa and Chocolate Products (Scotland) Regulations 1976.
