HC Deb 10 March 1986 vol 93 c351W
50. Mr. Tom Cox

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what action he is taking to ensure the safety standards of gas appliances imported into the United Kingdom.

Mr. Howard

I announced on 13 December that new regulations were to be prepared to ensure that both new and second-hand gas cookers sold in the United Kingdom meet proper safety standards. This will apply to both imported and home-produced goods. If I see a need for legislation for other gas appliances, I shall introduce it later.
