UK - Worthless assurances re-regulation

'There are no records on our data base of Borehole inspections' - UK Health and Safety Executive.

Actually guys, we never thought there would be. Prime Ministerial talk of 'adequate and stringent regulation' is just that - talk. When Messrs Cuadrilla first set up shop near Blackpool and prior to the much under reported failures at that location, five meetings were held with the H&E bods and not one meeting took place on site. Since then local authority spending has been cut to the bone and the implications must be obvious.
