HC Deb 06 May 1982 vol 23 c108W
Mr. John Fraser

asked the Minister for Trade if he will use his powers under the Consumer Safety Act to prohibit the sale of potentially lethal power supply units for citizens band radio which are made in Taiwan and marketed under Shira Eurosonic Power Plus Supreme. Miranda Ord, Kaybee Altai Nentone and Diza trade names.

Dr. Vaughan

The consumer services department of the Greater Manchester council has told us that citizens band radio power supply units of all but two of the brands referred to are likely to infringe the requirements of the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1975 as amended by the Electrical Equipment (Safety) (Amendment) Regulations 1976. It is proposing to prosecute suppliers. We are making inquiries about the other two brands.
