Motion text

That this House recalls the tragic death of Harvey Tyrrell on the 11 September 2018; understands that Harvey’s death was completely avoidable and was caused by negligence in safety standard by the pub owners; believes that the legislation regulating electrical safety was not sufficient and contributed to Harvey’s death; further believes that legislation should require every public house to provide yearly certification that electrical works have been tested and inspected with severe penalties for any landlord who fails to comply with electrical safety standards and the immediate loss of their licence and that electrical safety certification should be visible to all customers upon entering the premises of a public house; and calls on the Government to back Harvey Tyrrell’s Law and act swiftly to introduce the necessary legislation to make this legally enforceable throughout the country.
