Re: Seatbelt and mobile phone use surveys: 2017

As for using your phone to play music. Depends on where the phone is located imo. Ifs its up on the dash and within your field of peripheral vision then it is absoluetly no different to people using their radio. Sorry, but can't agree with that in the slightest. Most cars have some sort of remote s...

Re: Common / statue law

And just to muddy the waters further, there is the Occupiers' Liability Act which sets out in statute some of the principles of liability to be applied in common law.... Yes, the various Occupiers Liabilities Acts, which do not define or impose any sanction, do clarify some aspects of Common Law in...

Re: Commom / statue law

Some statute law includes civil sanctions which do not constitute a criminal offence, usually for environmental matters. See the Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Act 2008, for example. Yeas, that the middle ground as it were, for example where Councils have the Legal Power to impose fines, for ...

Re: Commom / statue law

I think in England & Wales, Common Law can be occasionally used in Criminal cases, but it's not very 'common' to do so aside for traditional crime such as Murder, as cited by Mrs P. The reason some 'Common Law' might be invoked in Criminal Cases is that the definition includes 'ancient' statute law ...

The Tidal Basin being the original 1880s Dock area that was reclaimed in the 1980s as mentioned in my earlier post. .salut...

Re: Old Photos and stories...

This guy (and you can make your own minds up what his part in the project is given the way he is dressed) is under the Baggage Hall at Tilbury Riverside Liner Terminal. The work was "Cement Repairs to Concrete Beams 1957" So I guess that if he falls, its' either the water of the River Thames or the ...

All these photos are from Tilbury Docks The comments on the back of this one seems to say 'Recovering part of NE corner of 28 Shed during re-roofing 1952 ' IMG_0001.jpg This next one is along the side of the entrance Lock to the docks, dated 1954 on the back. I'm convinced the structure in the backg...

Re: MEWPs and carrying loads

Within reason, there is nothing wrong with using the MEWP to carry 'stuff' so long as it is well controlled.
Once it's too big for the basket, it's even more important.

Re: Residential Fire Safety

It seems there is a bit of a problem here in that the Alarm system is a 'Life Safety' to only alert people in common areas (are there any, other than the halls?) yet Nell says : The fire alarms sound in the corridors, but not in the flats. This is concerning, as there have been occasions that when t...

Yep. the signage was on the list of things outstanding and I wasn't happy with him placing that great big fridge next to the door with the extension lead running around the walls. This is another view of the fridge by the door taken on the same visit..... :roll: 20160519_123833.jpg The really ironic...
