Case 86 - Charity shop has said that they cannot sell knitting needles for health and safety reasons

Issue

A charity shop has said that they cannot sell knitting needles for health and safety reasons.

Panel decision

There are no health and safety regulations which apply to sale/re-sale of knitting needles and the panel can see no legitimate health and safety reason which could justify this decision. We urge the charity to reconsider its decision and at least come clean on the real reason for its decision.
