The below Parliamentary question was asked by Nigel Evans on 2015-10-22.

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what sanctions the HSE can place on companies breaching gas safety.

Justin Tomlinson

Sanctions that can be put in place by HSE range from verbal and written advice, improvement notices which require companies to take specified measures to achieve compliance and prohibition notices that stop companies from carrying out specified activities. Ultimately there is prosecution where unlimited fines are available in the Courts. (13083)
