HC Deb 07 February 1980 vol 978 c334W
Mr. Colvin

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has any plans to amend building regulations to make it compulsory for developers, architects, contractors, local authorities, and all such bodies to whom such amendments would apply to include a chimney in all future private dwellings.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

No. It is better to leave this decision to individual builders and developers.
