§ 65. Mr. Fisher
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, as a safety measure, he will forbid the 297W sale to children of toy balloons filled with hydrogen gas.
§ Mr. George Thomas
My right hon. and learned Friend is aware of a recent case in which a child was slightly hurt when a balloon of this kind burst, but he has no power to forbid the sale of such balloons to children, and no evidence of a need for any general prohibition.
