Supporting the Review


We were delighted to hear this week that DECC Secretary of State Amber Rudd has received a number of letters of support for the Review. Representatives from across the industry, including product manufacturers, trade bodies and financers, conveyed their willingness to back the outcomes of the Review. In particular, a group of 22 approved installers expressed their desire for a raising of standards and quality, and urged Secretary of State to assist wherever possible. Thank you very much to everyone that has contributed. Letters of support, particularly at this crucial period, are very valuable and greatly appreciated!
