HC Deb 24 March 1960 vol 620 cc62-3W
69. Captain Orr

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is satisfied as to the safety of imported electrical household appliances, including washing machines; and what safety regulations exist covering such appliances.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I have no reason to think that imported electrical household appliances are not in general safe, but I shall be glad to consider any information on the subject that my hon. and gallant Friend may have in his possession. I have at present no power to make safety regulations in respect of such appliances.
