Carbon monoxide is a silent killer that has no colour, smell or taste, but can be detected with the purchase of a carbon monoxide alarm. It kills over 50 people and thousands experience ill effects annually. We can do something about this so I’m backing Eddie Hughes MP’s Carbon Monoxide Bill in Parliament which is proposing that carbon monoxide alarms become mandatory in not only new-build properties, but also all rented properties, including social housing and those in the private rented sector, to help prevent unnecessary deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning. If you haven’t got an alarm you might want to consider getting one. Together we can beat this silent killer.
