The Government introduced the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) regulations in 2015 to protect private sector tenants from death or injury in the home caused by smoke and carbon monoxide poisoning. The Government plans to conduct a review of the regulations by the end of 2017.

My officials meet regularly with associations of landlords, and will of course discuss with them the review of the regulations.
