39. Mrs. Butler
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps are being taken by his Department to ensure that pesticides for use in homes, shops and offices conform to approved safety standards.
§ Mr. Renton
The retail sale of preparations containing a number of toxic substances used in insecticides is subject to appropriate safeguards under the legislation relating to poisons. My right hon. Friend has no reason to think that any further steps are necessary.
