HC Deb 24 February 1971 vol 812 c182W
Mr. Julian Critchley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that substandard hot water bottles made in Czechoslovakia and imported by a firm, the name of which has been sent to him, are on sale in this country and that one of these bottles has burst, causing severe burns to the son of a constituent of the hon. Member for Aldershot; and if he will take steps to ban further imports of this product.

Mr. Sharples

I have arranged for urgent inquiries to be made into this unfortunate accident, of which I have learned with regret. I shall write to my hon. Friend as soon as these inquiries have been completed.
