Carbon Monoxide Poisoning In Households

EDM number 1141 in 2016-17, proposed by Margaret Ritchie on 18/04/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Housing and Oil, petrol and natural gas.

That this House notes with concern that around 30 people a year still die as a result of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and many more may unknowingly be poisoned; further notes that there has never been a fatality related to CO poisoning where an audible CO alarm, tested to the standard BS EN 50291, was present; acknowledges that the cost of these devices has significantly decreased since the introduction of the Building Regulations in 2010; highlights the recent research undertaken at Liverpool John Moores University which indicates it is low-income households who are most at risk of CO poisoning; notes the Government's stated intention in its White Paper, Fixing our broken housing market, to improve safeguards in the private rented sector; and calls on the Government, the Welsh Executive and the Northern Ireland Executive to implement similar regulations to those now in operation in Scotland and to require all landlords to install CO detectors in all rented properties, as part of a package of measures to achieve its aim of improved safeguards for people living in rented homes.

This motion has been signed by a total of 13 MPs.
