“Since being appointed in late July, #Bonfield said he had already met with small-trader accreditation service TrustMark, and had been in touch with energy companies, mortgage providers, housing associations and DIY chains.”
This is not a political blog, but perhaps the industry should take a look at what is happening in politics at the moment. The Labour party has just elected a new leader who received more votes than the Conservative party have members. This shows the growing frustration at the “Same Old” way of doing things, and the public’s feeling that it’s time to do something different.
So how should the #Bonfield Review do things differently?
Rather than talking to a trade organisation, perhaps the review should be talking to the installers that have made things work. Why not ask the GDHIF administrators who delivered the most measures and then talk to them directly? They know how to deliver cost effective schemes to their customers.
I don’t have anything against the trade organisations, but they should have been taking steps to improve quality before DECC started asking the questions. I was saying it, as an observer, so why weren’t they?
