Jeger asked Her Majesty's Government:

What limitations are placed on the housework of home helps; by whom these restrictions are fixed and monitored.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health (Baroness Cumberlege)

Any limitations are fixed and monitored by employers, who must act within the law. It is for local authorities and agencies providing such care to comply with and apply health and safety law for their employees.
