Plumbing firms petition for boiler scrappage in Scotland

A petition urging the Scottish government to follow Westminster by introducing a boiler scrappage scheme in Scotland, has been posted by SNIPEF (Scottish & Northern Ireland Plumbing Employers' Federation).
Representing nearly 700 plumbing and heating businesses in Scotland (employing nearly 3500 operatives) SNIPEF's petition, calls on the Scottish Parliament to introduce a financial incentive to encourage the replacement of older, inefficient central heating boilers.

'We have decided to launch this as an e-petition as a means of demonstrating to the Scottish government that such a scheme would be popular in Scotland and we encourage people to sign the e-petition before the closing date of February 19, 2010,' said SNIPEF director Robert Burgon

'We understand the government's position over focusing the assistance to those who are affected by fuel poverty and we are sure that a scheme can be developed which both does this and addresses the environmental damage caused by inefficient central heating boilers', he added'.

I think the Scottish government should follow their colleagues from England and introduce a boiler scrappage scheme.

Given the Scottish government's clear policies to help reduce global warning and trying to minimise the carbon footprint of every Scot, then this can only help them acheive this goal.
