Natural Gas: Engineers

Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 17 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what assessment he has made of the adequacy of standards in the regulation of domestic gas fitters and engineers; and what consideration he has given to the amendment of the existing regulatory regime. (241938)

The Health and Safety Executive addressed these matters in a review of the domestic gas safety regime in 2006. From April 2009 a reformed and expanded gas installer registration scheme, itself based in gas safety law, will include new arrangements seeking to ensure competent gas work by registered installers.
