ENSURE YOUR HOME IS WINTER READY

With winter closing in, I wish to remind constituents to get ready for anything the weather might bring. Last winter, more than 154,000 homes across Scotland experienced a boiler breakdown, leaving residents unable to heat their homes. During the ‘Beast from the East’, temperatures of below -10°C and wind speeds of over 60mph led to the busiest week on record for Scottish Gas, with 104 calls for assistance coming in every second – thirteen times usual call volumes.
