§ 14. Miss Burton
asked the Minister of Works whether he is now prepared to approach the trades concerned with a view to ensuring that all portable gas and electric fires are fitted with suitable guards.
§ Mr. Stokes
My Department is in touch with those concerned. The next step is the publication of British Standard specifications for the guards. I am informed that the British Standards Institution have this in hand.
§ Miss Burton
Knowing the Minister's regard for speedy action, might I ask him please to make use of it in this matter, because parents of young children are concerned about these accident guards?
§ Mr. Nabarro
Can the Minister tell the House whether the proposed guards will eliminate the use of steel, which is urgently wanted for other purposes?
