Please complain to your MP -- at this stage, this is the only chance of any change in the proposed legislation (and it's getting rather late for even that).
The proposed changes are ridiculas, and are all justified by an error in the calculations for electrical fatalities (i.e. including deaths due to electrical appliances, which are by far the majority).
Many people pointed this out in during the original consultative period, but this error was ignored. There is much speculation about what the real aim of the legislation is, but it's clear to just about everyone that it's nothing to do with safety, as it's likely to increase the number of deaths due to electrical incidents.
If you want to read my original response to the proposals, it's still available here:
is too late to submit further formal responses now, so the route you must follow now is via your MP.
