HC Deb 26 November 1979 vol 974 c525W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether he intends to introduce the EEC direction on product liability; and what the likely cost would be to consumers.

Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

I expect that a Council working party will commence a detailed study of a draft EEC Directive on product liability early next year. I cannot estimate the costs or benefits involved until I know the precise form which the directive will take.
