HC Deb 06 March 1995 vol 256 cc61-2W
Mr. Wilson

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment which sites in the United Kingdom currently hold the licences necessary for the manufacture of airbag detonators.

Mr. Oppenheim

This information is not available in the form requested.

Airbag detonators, normally referred to as airbag igniters, are explosive devices and, if manufactured in the UK, are subject to licensing under the Explosive Act 1875. However, such licenses are normally written in general terms and therefore it is not possible to identify specifically those premises manufacturing airbag igniters.
