    Sorry if this has already been covered but how badly do you guys (and gals) think this will affect the gas industry in terms of work, wages etc? Some of my mates aren't overly worried, some are. 50/50 split I would say.

    Depends on how much new build work you plan on doing in the future, there are if it's true 25 million homes in the UK the majority of which have gas CH (95%) which will still require servicing, repair and and eventual replacement.

    Typical government,

    Heads up there arses with no real investigation into utilising the supply network with alt or mixed fuel.

    Maybe we should all go green and have solar pv/thermal panels & electric heating. Oooopssssss..

    They buggered that one up with feed in tariffs and no real concept on how to implement correctly, aka fields & fields full of solar down here in Cornwall with the farmer sorted, Kerr-ching...

    I think we are 12 months past the first date this was supposed to happen. Don't hold your breath or give it a second thought.

    More nonsense!
    I dare say 'they'll' aim at it, 'they' aim at a lot of nonsense.

    I know what I’m about to say is not about gas but from an article I read some time ago the government is suggesting oil fired appliances will be rolled out by a certain time as well, some countries in Europe have already banned the use of their grade of heating oil. I can understand the reasoning behind it but what you have to remember is if the government tries to enforce this then there will be a large % of households nationwide that have no primary heat source, it would cost the government billions if not more nationwide to get each dwelling complying, especially when you take into the fact that the majority of house owners could not afford to change over systems. They use what they do because it’s the only option of fuel. I don’t think this is much to worry about right now.

    Even if the gas work starts to dry up , but it wont .
    There’s thousands of houses to be built in the next few years , tradesmen will be needed in other trades.

    My local council ( kirklees ) plans to build 31,000 new houses , no doubt other councils will follow .
