HC Deb 16 November 1955 vol 546 cc31-2W
15. Mr. H. Wilson

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if his attention has been drawn to recent inquest proceedings where loss of life was held to be due to the inferior quality of crash helmets at present on sale; and if he will take powers to ensure that all crash helmets produced and sold in this country conform to the specifications laid down by the British Standards Institution.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I would refer the right hon. Gentleman to the answer I gave on 25th October to Questions by my hon. Friend the Member for Portsmouth, South (Sir J. Lucas) and the hon. Member for Cardiff, West (Mr. G. Thomas).
