MPs have launched a campaign called ‘Carbon Monoxide Safe 4 Summer’ to highlight concerns over risks associated with the poisonous gas.
They say new landlords - who may for the first time be letting out properties, perhaps especially as short lets - may be unaware of the issues.
Chaired by Barry Sheerman MP, the All Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group - known as APPCOG - says it’s key to highlight the threat of carbon monoxide in wood and coal burners, liquid petroleum gas, and even some barbecues.
“It is more important than ever to raise awareness about the dangers of carbon monoxide this summer. The APPCOG has pushed carbon monoxide safety up the political agenda year on year, and the #Carbon Monoxide Safe4Summer campaign draws on the incredible work of the Group’s members to promote awareness and increase carbon monoxide safety. Please get involved, and share these simple steps to keep loved ones safe this summer” says Sheerman.
He says that across the UK, there has been an increase in entrepreneurial owners letting out properties for the first time, as many prepare to enjoy their summer holidays in this country.
