HC Deb 09 March 1994 vol 239 c275
12. Mr. Loyden

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what further estimate he has made of the number of gas appliance installers who are failing to register with the Council for Registered Gas Installers.

Mr. Eggar

I have made no such estimate.

Mr. Loyden

What action does the Minister intend to take to reduce the number deaths—one a week—caused by carbon monoxide poisoning? Is it a part of the Government's deregulation policy that they allow thousands of cowboy outfits to install gas appliances?

Mr. Eggar

All businesses must register and, of course, we have no intention of imperilling safety.
