HC Deb 05 August 1971 vol 822 c369W
Mr. Peter Mills

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in view of the serious accidents to children, he will take steps to make it an offence to decant a dangerous chemical into an unlabelled container.

Mr. Sharples

No. The trade generally is already subject to appropriate statutory or voluntary controls, and to regulate the activities of householders by such legislation would be impracticable.
