HC Deb 18 June 1973 vol 858 c35W
Mr. Biffen

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what further discussions he has had with the British Standards Institution and television manufacturers with a view to reducing fire risk in television sets; what conclusions have been reached; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lane

These discussions are continuing within the appropriate technical committee of the British Standards Institution. A draft flammability test for printed circuit boards has been prepared, and other possible improvements to the present British Standard are being studied.
