Ms. Walley

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will extend the 1 March deadline in respect of second-hand foam furniture regulations to enable clarification and safeguards to be written into the regulations in connection with the recycling of secondhand furniture by charities; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Leigh

My Department has no plans to amend those requirements of the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988, as amended, which apply to second-hand upholstered furniture, and which came into force on 1 March this year.

Forward to
