10 a year
DIY electricians face big fines from Saturday but many are unaware of the new legislation, a survey suggests.
The new regulations mean work more complicated than replacing a plug socket or changing a light switch can require official approval.
Dangerously-fitted electrics cost the lives of an average of 10 people a year,..
The government opted for legislation because of a rising number of deaths due to amateur electrical work.
No! They legislated for the same reason a Dog licks its balls - because they can. I could easily make a case that DIY electrics save more than 10 lives a year - a heater to keep Granny warm, a mains powered smoke detector - moing a socket to a safer place etc.
And on the subject of ten deaths a year:
Thousands of deer are killed or injured on the UK's roads every year, with 10 motorists dying in crashes involving deer.
Proposals to control wild deer numbers are being published by the government. ...
Defra is heralding the strategy as the first modern framework for tackling the management of wild deer.
The(y) say that despite the role of the government, the primary responsibility for deer control will remain with landowners.
Sorry - what role has the Government got in this? Or are they going to be handing out the ammunition....
