Mosquito Device

EDM number 433 in 2010-12, proposed by Tom Watson on 07/07/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Anti-social behaviour and Children and families.

That this House notes with concern that there are an estimated 5,000 Mosquito devices in the UK; believes that there is a lack of research into the short and long-term effects of the high frequency pitch emitted from the devices on the hearing of unborn babies, children, retail workers under the age of 25 and animals; further notes that the Committee on the Rights of the Child has stated that the Mosquito device should be reconsidered by national governments; welcomes the decision of the Association of Chief Police Officers to refuse national approval of the Mosquito device; and calls on the Government to urgently review the short and long-term effects of the Mosquito device.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
