AN MP has demanded urgent action to prevent more tragedies, following the death of a Huddersfield boy.
Labour MP Barry Sheerman has tabled a series of questions to Government ministers, demanding action.
The Huddersfield MP said he was determined to make sure the tragedy of 10-year-old Dominic Rodgers was never repeated.
Dominic died of carbon monoxide poisoning when fumes seeped into the bedroom of the home he shared with his mother, Stacey, in Spaines Road, Fartown.
Initial tests suggest that the fumes seeped into his room from a passageway linking back-to- back houses.
And West Yorkshire Coroner Roger Whittaker has issued urgent appeals for people to get experts to check their gas equipment.
Mr Whittaker fears that up to 12,000 back-to-back houses in this area could pose a risk - with thousands more across the rest of the country.
is asking Health Secretary John Reid to look at ways of making sure all homes have gas appliances checked annually.
He has also wants the Government to organise a meeting with gas industry leaders and the Health and Safety Executive.
Mr Sheerman hopes to organise a national campaign to deal with the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.
