Deaths Caused By Looped Blind Cords

EDM number 2862 in 2010-12, proposed by Paul Flynn on 13/03/2012.
Categorised under the topics of Children and families and Industrial health and safety.

That this House is distressed at the news of further deaths of infants caused by looped blind cords, including that of a 22-month-old boy in January; notes the recent increase in these tragedies reported by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, including three in the past month; recalls the 359 cord deaths in the USA in a 14 year period; regrets the slow progress by industry in introducing cords with safety features; and urges the Government to bring forward an initiative to publicise the serious danger to the lives of children from 250 million cords in homes in the UK.

This motion has been signed by a total of 25 MPs.
