Please could you advise if there is any Government legislation relating to cleaning kitchen extraction regularly to prevent fire hazard from the build up of grease?
Kind regards

Article 10 and Schedule Part 3 - Principles of Prevention. 

Whilst not explicit (few things are, the legislation sets out broad requirements, not the detail of how to achieve them), the cleaning of duct work would be a means of avoiding or combating fire risks as required by the legislation.

There are plenty of destroyed workplaces that prove the need for such precautions.

When you have it carried out it's a good idea to have it certified in accordance with TR/19. They will also be able to advise you on frequency and how to do it properly. 

Such as low 2-6 hours (12 months) moderate 6-12 hours (6 months) and high usage 12+ (3 months). 

This is also evidence to satisfy the above article.
