HC Deb 11 May 1988 vol 133 c143W
33. Mr. Janner

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will introduce legislation to provide that potentially dangerous solvents in shops shall be kept in locked cabinets.

Mr. Butcher

No. Re-Solv, the non-profit-making body set up by the industry to combat solvent abuse, is issuing guidance to retailers, part funded by Government, which advises them to keep "sniffable" products locked up, out of reach, under the counter or under direct supervision. I prefer this to compulsion.
