HC Deb 21 March 1963 vol 674 c90W
76. Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make regulations under the Consumer Protection Act to forbid the marketing of electric kettles lacking effective cut-outs.

Mr. Woodhouse

Before considering the making of regulations my right hon. Friend intends to see how far the voluntary approvals scheme of the British Electrical Approvals Board for Domestic Appliances can secure an improvement in the standard of electric kettles which may be unsatisfactory in this or other respects.
