HC Deb 31 May 1951 vol 488 c393
22. Mr. Rogers

asked the President of the Board of Trade if, in view of the large numbers of accidents resulting from the use of unprotected electric fires, he will introduce legislation to make compulsory the provision of safety guards on all such fires or radiators offered for sale to the public.

Sir H. Shawcross

The introduction of legislation confined to the object suggested by my hon. Friend is not a matter for which I should be responsible, but I understand that an inter-Departmental Committee is at present considering the whole question of safety guards on electric fires and radiators.
