Milton Keynes Council could become the first local authority in England and Wales to prosecute butchers for breaching the Government's beef-on-the bone ban.

News that a Scottish court has thrown out a beef on the bone case against a butcher will not affect Milton Keynes Council's cases brought under a different part of the regulations, it was said today.

It could mean that Milton Keynes Council will become the first local authority in England and Wales to prosecute for such an offence.

The council will be prosecuting two butchers in the town of Bletchley for selling pre-wrapped foreribs of beef with bone intact. The court cases are due to be heard on May 8 at Milton Keynes Magistrates Court.

Phil Winsor, the council's chief environmental health officer said 'We will be studying the Scottish court case decision but at the moment it looks as though we will still go ahead with our cases.'
