Ucatt chief blasts Tories


UNION leaders are worried that Conservative plans to cut red tape could lead to a drop in the number of Health and Safety Executive inspectors.

Ucatt general secretary Alan Ritchie said: 'The Tories say they will cut red tape and one of their targets will be the HSE.

'The number of inspectors will be cut when we need more, not fewer, of them. If there are fewer inspectors, more building firms will be tempted to cut corners with unimaginable effect.'
