§ Mr. O'Hara
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he intends to review the legislation relating to corporate responsibility, liability and accountability for public safety; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Leigh
My Department keeps under review any issues which may affect the safety of consumers and the responsibility of suppliers of consumer products to ensure that their products are reasonably safe. The relevant legislation is the Consumer Protection Act 1987 and I have no immediate plans to undertake a review of the Act.
