§ Mr. Battle
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether the Government have any plans to introduce statutory controls governing operation and testing of air pressure gauges on garage forecourts in order to ensure that they meet the approved British standard.
§ Mr. Forth
I have been asked to reply.
British Standard 4613 (specification for tyre pressure gauges) which has been approved for the purposes of Section 10(3) of the Consumer Protection Act 1987 is applicable to portable gauges supplied as consumer products.
I have no plans to introduce statutory controls for air pressure gauges on garage forecourts.
