To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations she has received on a statutory duty for home safety; and if she will make a statement. 
I have received several representations from organisations involved in promoting home safety including RoSPA and the Institute of Home Safety.Local Authorities may use their existing powers to promote safety in the home and work with the many other agencies with an interest, including Government Departments and RoSPA. I believe this is the right approach. To impose a statutory burden would result in considerable costs and could undermine the very positive work already in place without such a requirement.
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what estimate she has made of the cost to public funds of home accidents, in each of the last five years. 
No direct estimate of this has been made in any of the last five years.
