HC Deb 25 June 1979 vol 969 c87W
Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will institute an inquiry into the need to warn heart sufferers equipped with pacemakers of the dangers of entering a computer hall.

Dr. Vaughan

Pacemaker wearers are given general warning of possible dangers from some electrical appliances. I am not aware of any previous suggestion of a particular hazard from computer installations but I am referring the matter to the pacemaker advisory group for consideration.
