Sark would be unable to react quickly enough to an outbreak of E. coli because of inadequacies in its catering law.
Accusations of a slow response to the recent outbreak made against Surrey authorities have ‘refocused’ Sark’s Public Health Committee on making sure it could deal with a similar problem.
Committee chairman David Melling said an outbreak like the one at Godstone Farm could seriously damage Sark’s tourist industry.
