Us, Canada And Eu Announcement On Looped Blind Cord Safety

EDM number 292 in 2010-12, proposed by Gordon Banks on 22/06/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Industrial health and safety.

That this House welcomes the joint statement by the US Consumer Products Safety Commission, Health Canada and the European Commission Health and Consumers Directorate-General of 15 June 2010 calling for a swift and comprehensive process that concurrently eliminates the risk factors causing deaths and injuries from all types of corded window covering products; believes that deaths in the UK and the wider world as a result of strangulation from looped blind cords is a tragedy that could be avoided; and calls on the Government to work with campaigners and the industry to enact the ambitions of this statement with immediate effect.

This motion has been signed by a total of 39 MPs.
