I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if he has, since the 19th March last, considered whether some means might be taken to warn householders how to prevent kitchen boiler explosions during winter; and, if so, will he state his decision?

The matter to which the hon. Member refers is still receiving my careful consideration, and I am in communication with my right hon. Friend, the President of the Local Government Board, with a view of devising some efficient means of warning householders of the steps to be taken to prevent domestic boiler explosions in winter. No definite decision as to the precise means to be adopted has yet been arrived at.
