HC Deb 08 November 1982 vol 31 c19W
25. Mr. Durant

asked the Minister for Trade if he will take steps to prevent the import of household electrical plugs which do not meet British Standards Institution criteria.

Dr. Vaughan

Despite the regulations under the Consumer Protection Act and the Consumer Safety Act unsafe plugs are finding their way on to the market. This is clearly unsatisfactory and I am considering the introduction of regulations to deal with this.
