HC Deb 24 May 1976 vol 912 cc3-4W
Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many deaths there were resulting from the fumes of polyurethane foam in the last year for which figures are available.

Dr. Summerskill

I regret that the information requested is not available. In the case of deaths from fires it is not normally possible to identify which of the burning substances originated the fumes causing death.
