      I am most grateful to you for drawing attention to this letter, sent to Pickles by the chairman of the Committee on Climate Change, Lord Deben. In it , he makes a very eloquent case for retaining, indeed reinforcing, the present system of energy certification. If he reads no other response to his “public consultation”, Pickles should read this letter, and then folow the advice given.

    It is surprising how quickly the wheels of Government can turn; it is a great shame that they cannot be as fast, efficient and effective when it comes to eradicating child and furl poverty.

    Wouldn’t it be somewhat befitting if Pickles last action in Government and for which he is remembered, was an action that was designed to avoid and curtail the interests of a large group of voters!

    Such people will get their say, if only at the election box.

    You are quite right to express surprise at the speed with which the analysis of this particular “public consultation” is being done. Contrast this with half year or more it took Mr Pickles to anayse the responses to improvements to Part L of the building regulations. Or the outlawing of F and G rated rentals by private sector landlords. Or indeed whether or not to proceed with consequential improvements. In each of these cases, extreme lethargy was the order of the day. What a strange set of priorities he does have…
