Boiler scrappage expected in Darling's PBR

Chancellor Alistair Darling is expected to announce a new boiler scrappage scheme for Britain this week.
Boiler scrappage expected in Darling
A £400 discount for homeowners to trade in their old boilers for new greener models is expected to feature in Chancellor Darling's Pre-Budget Report speech at the House of Commons on December 9.

By replacing a G rated boiler with a new A rated condensing boiler and better controls, household bills can be cut by up to a quarter. In a family home that could mean a saving of £235 a year.

Alan Ball, MD of PTS plumbing trade suppliers is one of many supporters of the boiler scrappage campaign 'Reheat Britain'. He said: 'Not only could the boiler scrappage scheme result in financial benefits but it could also help with environmental targets. The installation of high efficiency boilers will help to cut fuel bills whilst increasing demand in all sectors of the industry'.

I've been told that I need to get a new boiler by the company that I use for boiler servicing and I was wondering if someone could tell me what I would be entitled too.

I fail to understand the point in such a scheme as it will not help those in most need to upgrade or the ailing boiler industry in a big way.

Band G is, as far as I'm aware solid/ liquid fuel burners owned by rich people in the sticks who can easily afford to upgrade should they like.

Why not make it so that the families in council accomodation can upgrade and reduce their bills rather than another kickback for the wealthy?

Sort it out Mr Darling.
