He is correct.This is so that you cannot touch the boiler (any associated electrics) whilst in the bath.He should have told you a bit more than what he has.

yes your boiler should be in a cupboard,

as it is over your bath there is a possible risk of a electric shock,

boiler will need minimum clearances as per boiler manufacturers installation manual, cupboard can be fixed or removable

hope that helps,

best wishes for 2012
