How many politicians are in receipt of RHI?

Your editorial (Comment, January 6) adroitly questions the political posturing over the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

Can I ask then whether the media surveyed our elected political representatives at all levels to determine which of them are recipients of RHI? And whether the BBC, or its staff, benefit from the scheme?

This is surely a matter of public interest - given the invective that has freely flowed over the last while?

It would be hypocritical of these political parties to be slagging off Mrs Foster were they themselves benefiting from this scheme.

If the RHI truly does return £160 for every £100 invested, then why would one vote for a politician who hasn't even the good sense to sign up?
