Motion text

That this House notes that, according to the Electrical Safety Council, the average level of success of electrical product recalls, at an estimated 10 to 20 per cent, is worryingly low and places the public at unnecessary risk from fire and electric shock; expresses concern over the quality of guidance currently provided on how and when to initiate a recall action; believes that information on the progress of electrical product recalls should be collated and made generally available to ensure the public is kept informed; and calls on the Government to investigate these and other associated measures at the nearest opportunity, in order better to protect consumers.
