Saskatchewan's restaurant-goers could soon be able to find out if their favourite bistro flunked a health inspection.

The provincial government introduced legislation Wednesday that would allow it to release restaurant inspection information to the public.

Health Minister Len Taylor said the proposed amendmentto the Public Health Act reflects the public's concern for food safety.

Once the change is passed, the Health Department would talk with restaurant operators, health regions and others about what information should be released and howit should be shared with the public.

The government says it expects the new regulations for the public disclosure of restaurant inspection reports will be in place by spring 2007.

Other provinces, including Alberta and Manitoba, already make the results of some restaurant inspections public.
