MPs pledge to be ‘button battery aware’ at Westminster launch of The Harper Lee Foundation

This week, Members of Parliament from across the House of Commons pledged to become ‘button battery aware’ at the Westminster launch of The Harper Lee Foundation. The reception which took place on Tuesday 7 June, coincided with Child Safety Week (6-12 June) and gave MPs the opportunity to learn more about button and coin battery safety and hear about the work that the portable battery industry, charities, and the UK Government are doing together in order to raise awareness of the risks associated with swallowing these types of batteries and reduce the likelihood of these incidents occurring.
