Business, Innovation and Skills
Chris Williamson (Derby North, Labour)
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills pursuant to the answer of 10 October 2011, Official Report, column 275W, on lighters: safety, which authorities have taken action in response to concerns from industry.
Mark Prisk (Minister of State (Business and Enterprise), Business, Innovation and Skills; Hertford and Stortford, Conservative)
Local authorities are not required to inform us of their market surveillance activities regarding lighters and as a result we do not have a complete picture of the activities that have been undertaken in response to concerns from industry.
