Parliamentary Lunch

Members of the National Home Improvement Council (NHIC) and their guests attended a special luncheon in the House of Commons on 20th May 2013. The topic of the day was ‘The Green Deal and the future’ and in an interesting overview of this major government initiative Nick Raynsford MP, President of NHIC, considered the impact of the programme on both the home improvement industry and the consumer.

Those members and guests present, from all sectors of the industry, welcomed the opportunity to receive this update on the schemes implementation and progress. In his presentation Nick Raynsford said that NHIC had recently been leading discussions concerning the relationship between SME, Green Deal Providers and Assessors. He confirmed that whilst the process had produced positive results there remained a considerable amount of work to be done to ensure the schemes success in achieving the high targets set by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) for energy efficiency measures across UK homes.

Following lunch members and guests continued the debate and took the opportunity for networking in the unique environment of this historic venue.
This event represents the latest in a series arranged by NHIC, representing 50/60,000 SME’s as well as major players involved with the renovation, modernisation (RMI) industry. Register now for advance information on the NHIC Parliamentary Lunch 2014 – contact laurenomand@nhic.org.uk
