star this property answer text <p>Following Royal Assent of the Housing and Planning Act 2016, a Working Group of relevant experts, including the Local Government Association, was established to provide recommendations to Ministers on what, if any, legislative requirements for electrical safety in the private rented sector should be introduced. The Working Group met four times, in August, October, November and December 2016. The working group has now concluded and Ministers are considering its report and recommendations.</p><p>A recent consultation by the Health and Safety Executive on The Gas Safety (Installations and Use) Regulations 1998 involved an assessment of the adequacy of landlords’ gas safety checks.

star this property answer text <p>In 2010 the Department funded the Local Government Association to develop guidance on fire safety in purpose built blocks flats, which includes specific advice on ensuring the safety of disabled people and means of escape in the event of a fire. This was published in 2011 and is available at: <a href="https://www.local.gov.uk/fire-safety-purpose-built-flats" target="_blank">https://www.local.gov.uk/fire-safety-purpose-built-flats</a>.</p><p>Approved Document B (Fire Safety) provides guidance on securing reasonable standards of health and safety of persons in and about buildings. This is intended to include all people including people with disabilities. However, as set out paragraph 0.19 this also recognises that the needs of some disabled people will need to be considered on a case-by-case basis.</p><p>The Government is committed to helping older and disabled people to live independently and safely at home. The Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) is a means-tested grant which can contribute towards meeting the cost of adapting an older or disabled person’s property, including to improve access (for example, through widening doorframes). Since 2012-13 the Government has invested over £1.6 billion into the DFG, providing around 250,000 adaptations. The grant is £431 million this year, rising to £468m next year, and will be over £500 million by 2020.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department has an established Employee Relations Framework under which we consult our recognised trade unions on a range of employment and staffing matters relevant to their members who work in the Department. Such discussions will occur throughout the year and will take place as required dependent, to an extent, upon if and how we propose to change, develop or improve our employment policies or employee engagement strategy. The significant majority of such meetings are informal in nature and we do not routinely maintain a record of the number or content of these discussions. The Department ensures that our employee relations work and trade union activity and time operate within the guidelines set by Cabinet Office.</p><p>Details of Ministers' and Permanent Secretary meetings with external organisations can be found at the following links on gov.uk:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/dclg-ministerial-data" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/dclg-ministerial-data</a></p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/business-expenses-and-hospitality-for-dclg-senior-officials" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/business-expenses-and-hospitality-for-dclg-senior-officials</a></p>

Under the National Framework for Fire and Rescue in England, each authority must determine its own risk-based inspection programme and have in place a management strategy for enforcing its provisions.</p><p>It is for competent fire safety officers in each authority to consider, on the basis of their audit and/or inspection findings, whether the general fire precautions in place in any particular premises are sufficient to comply with the requirements of the Order. Where shortcomings are identified, fire and rescue authorities have a range of enforcement powers, up to and including prosecution, to ensure any necessary improvements are made.</p><p>Details of the number and outcome of fire and rescue authority audits under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 in 2016/17 are available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/fire-prevention-and-protection-statistics-england-april-2016-to-mach-2017" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/fire-prevention-and-protection-statistics-england-april-2016-to-march-2017</a></p>
