§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Minister of Health, whether he is taking any steps to prevent imported insulated electric wire, in which reclaimed rubber has been used, being utilised in buildings in the erection of which his Department has jurisdiction, in view of the risk of fire arising owing to the reclaimed rubber disintegrating the insulation and setting up short circuit?
§ Sir K. WOOD
My right hon. Friend is advised that the matter referred to by my hon. Friend is one within the jurisdiction of local authorities.
