Statement from Minister Nelson McCausland in response to Mark H Durkan’s comments on the DSD boiler replacement scheme

Stormont Executive press release - Department for Social Development

Social Development Minister Nelson McCausland said: “Mr Durkan is clearly misinformed when he suggests this scheme has failed to deliver. 

“6,500 households from across Northern Ireland are now enjoying the efficiency benefits of a brand new boiler and more than 70 per cent of those households are also on lower incomes, exactly the kind of people who need this support. 

“Hundreds of small businesses have also benefited with 800 local installers involved in carrying out this work. I would like to encourage as many people as possible to contact the Housing Executive who are administering the scheme, to see if they could be eligible.”
