New regulations in particular for flats and multiple occupancy homes came in about these in about 2008.  If I remember correctly it is called a Flame Failure Device.  Worth remembering when you are replacing a gas hob or oven!  But it doesn't obviate the need for a gas tap as you can still turn the gas controls on accidently without lighting it (especially when the electricity is off).

(I remember posting in about 2011 - when the parents' flat kitchen was being re-done.  Nobody seemed to know anything about it then.)
