§ Mr. Ioan Evans
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection when she intends to make Regulations for perambulators and pushchairs based on 620W British Standard 4139: 1967 and 4792: 1972; and if she will make a statement.
Mr. Alan Williams
Draft regulations based on the provisions in these British Standards relating to stability, locking devices, efficiency of brakes and safety harness attachment points have today been circulated to interested bodies for comment. The regulations will be an important first step towards imposing more comprehensive safety requirements.
