HC Deb 05 July 1971 vol 820 c250W
92. Mr. Allason

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether, in view of the continuing record of fatal accidents from domestic gas heating appliances, he will give general directions to the gas boards to supply ducted air venting or other direct air supply which does not cause draughts in the living area of the house.

Mr. Ridley

No. The gas industry, I understand, is working to bring ventilation up to present day standards, but the particular form of improvement for the various installations it finds is a matter for individual area boards to decide in the light of the requirements of the customer.
