HC Deb 31 October 1980 vol 991 c398W
Mr. Speller

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will seek to amend the building regulations to provide that new homes should be built with a chimney so that solid fuels can be used as an alternative to oil, electricity or gas heating.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

No. I consider it is better to leave this decision to individual builders and developers and their customers.
