Re: Changing gas hob to induction - help

having done that same thing here are some bits of information you will need to cap off the gas, so you will need someone who is a gas-safe registered engineer. most 5 station induction hobs need a 30amp supply, so unless you have one, a new ring main will need to be installed (cables from your consu...

I add though that if you want your child to be in with a chance at Graveney or a grammar or an academic independent, you will have to hav...

He would not be responsible for any maternity or paternity pay, am I right? In which case he could have hired another nanny on a fixed term contract. Perhaps he...
