More time for regulations

Can I add a note to John Davies's article on the new fire and safety regulations (Caterer, 23 February, page 48)?

Although the original date for their introduction was 1 April 2006, in January Whitehall (for England and Wales) and the Scottish Executive postponed implementation to later this year (possibly 1 October). As a result, hoteliers have more time than was indicated to prepare.
