Accident at work...liability?

Not to be trusted with sharp tools? Change in the law banning home delivery.

Apparently there is a proposed change in the law that will mean you will only be able to buy bladed tools OTC (over the counter) in stores and at dealers. I am not sure how this will affect purchasing gardening and horticultural hand tools, but presumably will affect the sales of chisels and screwdrivers etc. There is an online Parliamentary petition that I have signed, whether it will make any difference is another matter. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/222776

A mate of mine has insists that if we have a hosepipe ban, then we as professionals can ignore and continue to use hoses? I told him it's rubbish and you must have to pay some kind of special company water rates surely? Can anyone clarify ? Many thanks
