||<p>The Government’s approach to reducing risks from carbon monoxide poisoning covers
all tenures and locations including communities not on the gas distribution grid.</p><p>A
Cross-Government Group exists to ensure a joined–up approach across departments, the
devolved administrations and non-departmental bodies. MHCLG is a member of this group.
Each year, the group publishes a report with a summary of activities. The latest report
can be seen at <a href="http://www.hse.gov.uk/gas/domestic/cross-government-group.htm"
June 2018, MHCLG published a set of ‘how to’ guides for tenants, landlords and leaseholders
to help ensure that a rented property is safe to live in. This includes guidance about
carbon monoxide alarms.</p><p>MHCLG is also carrying out a review to establish whether
carbon monoxide alarm requirements, currently limited to solid fuel burning appliances
in the private rented sector, should be extended to social housing and to other fuel-burning
appliances, including mains gas and liquefied petroleum gas and oil where mains gas
is not available. The findings of this review are being considered alongside responses
to the Social Housing Green Paper.</p>
