Gawd, how big do these new hatches have to be? For the reasonable percentage of us urbanite conversion-dwellers who have ceiling lights recessed into the same void as the flue, for instance, might those holes be adequate? Or will it become normal to look up inside a flat and see a run of otherwise pointless blank rectangles?
I'm all for safer gas use but confess to getting a bit sick of the rules being rewritten every other year or so, never mind the presumably expensive recent rebranding to Gas Safe from Corgi. Isn't there a smarter way of testing flue efficiency from the outlet point?
And Simon Hughes
, whatever happened to the coalition's supposed "bonfire of the regulations"?
