Essential reading for retailers and suppliers in the home improvement market

BHETA to lobby minister on proposed knife legislation

Published: 25 September 2017 - Sue Deane

Having canvassed member opinion on the Government’s proposed legislative changes on the selling and marketing of knives, The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) has approached home secretary Amber Rudd for a meeting to discuss the possible implications for housewares suppliers and retailers.  BHETA is now working with BIRA and LACORS, the Local Authorities Coordinators of Regulatory Services, on this issue.

Potential legislation on the selling of knives could mean that anyone purchasing a knife online will have to collect it either at a store or from another physical location in order to prove their identity and age.  

“Clearly this is an important issue from many points of view so it is vital that we represent the feelings of suppliers in the market in order that the best conclusions can be reached,” said BHETA housewares director Will Jones.
