HC Deb 15 May 1952 vol 500 c143W
75. Mr. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation banning the manufacture of celluloid and other toys made of highly inflammable materials.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

A Departmental Committee which considered this question in 1938 found no justification for prohibiting the manufacture of such toys. I have no reason to think that accidents have become more frequent since then, and I can hold out no prospect of legislation.
