HC Deb 10 May 1960 vol 623 cc32-3W
50. Dr. D. Johnson

asked the Prime Minister what action he proposes to take with regard to the recommendations of the Molony Committee on Consumer Protection, that all legislation pertaining to home safety should be the responsibility of a single Minister.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I have been asked to reply.

The Committee, in an Interim Report, has recommended centralised responsibility for the new legislation which it proposes in the limited field of personal safety, but has made no such recommend-dation in respect of existing or future legislation covering consumer welfare generally. The report is under consideration by the Ministers directly concerned, and my right hon. Friend proposes to await the result of these deliberations.
