HC Deb 21 November 1963 vol 684 cc116-7W
16. Mrs. McLaughlin

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will now make regulations on the colour coding of electric flexes; and when these regulations will be issued.

Mr. Woodhouse

Draft regulations have been circulated to interested bodies. The comments so far received show considerable difference of opinion as to the colours which should be prescribed. Before making regulations my right hon. Friend must also take into account the consideration being given to the fixing of international standards.
