Home Safety Kits Debate, 13/11/14 [S]

Debate in the Scottish Parliament on 13 November 2014 on home safety kits. The debate was introduced by Clare Adamson (SNP).

The motion was debated without any question being put:

That the Parliament notes the evidence relating to home safety equipment fitting schemes and considers that there is a need for local schemes to be administered; notes that young children are most likely to be involved in accidents in their own homes in Central Scotland and across the country but that often the correct safety equipment, with supporting education, can prevent unnecessary suffering from burns and scalds, falls and poisonings; acknowledges the forthcoming evaluation report on Scotlandís Home Safety Equipment Scheme, and notes the ongoing contributions by ROSPA to accident prevention and safety awareness in the home.

For full details see the Scottish Parliament Official Report 13 November 2014 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
