§ 78. Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that various makes of flannelette are sold under such trade descriptions as "non-flashable," "safety flannelette," "standard will not blaze, "and so forth, and that these productions blaze with the utmost freedom on the application of an ordinary match and, if so, having regard to the danger to the public by these misleading descriptions, whether he will take steps, either by legislation or otherwise, to forbid their sale?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. McKenna)
Yes, Sir, I am aware that various makes of flannelette are sold under misleading descriptions of the kind referred to. As regards the last part of the question, I would remind the hon. Member that, as I stated in my reply to him last Monday, I am waiting for suggestions as to the prescription of practicable standards and tests with a view to the introduction of legislation, and I am not without hope of receiving them.
