Motion text

That this House notes with concern that every year at least 20 to 30 lives are lost from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, and possibly many more, because domestic gas appliances have not been properly installed or maintained and congratulates organisations such as Consumer Safety International, CO-Gas Safety, The Dominic Rodgers Trust and CO-Awareness on keeping this issue in the public eye; calls for increased enforcement action against incompetent and illegal installers and servicers, strongly encourages the energy industry to provide approved audible British Standard CO detectors in homes, schools and workplaces and the British holiday industry to ensure that approved audible CO detectors are available in accommodation at risk overseas; calls on relevant emergency workers to carry CO detection equipment with them; calls for more progress on training workers who install and service appliances as well as the training of clinicians to include CO poisoning to reduce misdiagnoses; and calls for the systematic recording of CO poisoning incidents so that the true scale of the problem can be identified and for a commitment by the British holiday industry to exercise the greatest possible pressure to raise the standards of gas and solid fuel safety in overseas accommodation which they place the travelling public in.
