Health and Safety Executive
29 April 2004
I must correct Sue Carroll's incorrect suggestion (A polite reminder… stop nannying us, 14 April) that the Health and Safety Executive 'insisted on' the floor at Todmorden Town Hall being stripped of polish because it was slippery. HSE did no such thing.
In another inaccuracy, Sue Carroll says that 'mountaineers must face signs telling them snow can be slippery.' There is no requirement for such warning signs on mountains.
I would be grateful if you could make these two points in a correction in the Daily Mirror.
