§ 122. Mr. Kimball
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware of the number of fires and accidents caused by electric blankets; and if he will investigate this matter with a view to introducing legislation covering the construction of these devices.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
I am not persuaded that legislation for this purpose is necessary. Most electric blankets now on the market comply with a British Standards Specification, which includes reasonable standards and tests designed to secure safety.
