I have been asked to reply.

The Government have no plans at present to bring forward proposals in this area. The HSE is aware though that an energy supply company has provided its employees with personal carbon monoxide alarms and that they have been sharing their experience with other companies. HSE will continue to encourage this exchange of information on the practicalities of the use of different types of equipment in order to identify best working practices. HSE has also provided support to a scheme where personal carbon monoxide alarms are used by community-based services.
