    Heating grants

    It seems that’s this government’s way of doing things. It’s almost as if they are worried about losing votes to Labour populist policies so are acting like a Labour government to retain those votes, whilst expecting those traditional Conservative voters will keep voting for them as they have no...

    Same as clawing the £200 loan-not-loan back over the next few years would have cost a bit too.

    Just been checking this myself It’s the meter profile class that matters. Thankfully the farmhouse here is class 1. The farm meters are classed as non-domestic (3 and 4). There is an MPAN number on your bill. The first digit after the S tells you the profile class. It needs to be a 1 or a 2...
