Fuel poverty plea to Government.

THE commercial director of Knowsley-based Warmer Heating has been appointed chair of a key industry body and has immediately called on the Government to act on fighting fuel poverty.

Bryan Glendinning has taken over at the Grant Aided heating Installers network (GAIN) which links professionals within the industry and helps protect the rights of consumers through grant-aided schemes such as Warm Front.

Mr Glendinning is urging the Government to end uncertainty over the future of Warm Front, which provides grants to those on benefits to improve the energy efficiency and heating provision in their homes.

He said more than 5m people in England are in fuel poverty, and this number continues to rise: "We will be campaigning hard and lobbying the Government to protect the Warm Front grant.

"Lives will be at risk if we have another winter like last one. The industry needs to come together to ensure this doesn't happen."
