London Times Online: The nanny state is more advanced in England than in the U.S., but can we be far behind? “Health and safety inspectors are to be given unprecedented access to family homes to ensure that parents are protecting their children from household accidents. New guidance drawn up at the request of the Department of Health urges councils and other public sector bodies to ‘collect data’ on properties where children are thought to be at ‘greatest risk of unintentional injury.’ Council staff will then be tasked with overseeing the installation of safety devices in homes, including smoke alarms, stair gates, hot water temperature restrictors, oven guards and window and door locks.”
