To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether his Department plans to take into account the Regulation 28: Report to prevent future deaths by David Lewis, Assistant Coroner for the area of North Wales (East and Central) on the Llanrwst fire inquest when it responds to the report from the Working Group on Product Recalls and Safety.

The Department has been closely monitoring this tragic case and we will be considering whether there are any wider implications for product safety in light of the Coroner’s Report and Whirlpool’s formal response to the Coroner, which is due by 26th December.

The Government’s response to the Working Group on Product Recalls and Safety will consider the recommendations made in their Report in July. Our response will consider any factors that are relevant to improving the system of product safety and recalls so that consumers can have confidence in the safety of electrical products.
