asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry when he will announce his proposed regulations concerning the safety of child buggy pushchairs; and if he will make a statement.

As stated in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Chipping Barnet (Mr. Chapman) on 19 December 1984 at column 288, I hoped to lay draft new regulations before the House this spring. However the EC Commission considers that in their present form the regulations would create a barrier to tradeand has asked for their introduction tobe suspended until this question has been resolved.The Government rely on safety grounds as justification for the regulations. I cannot say at present when the regulations will go ahead.
