Question to the Home Office

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to control the sale of dangerous acids.

Answer (Baroness Williams of Trafford)

We are developing a set of voluntary commitments for retailers to restrict access to the most harmful corrosive products. We are currently discussing the commitments with the British Retail Consortium. We are also undertaking work to review the Poisons Act 1972 and how it controls the sale of particular acids and corrosive substances.
