Have your say

A Leyland businessman fears for the future of his firm and say he can no longer take on 20 apprentices after being blind-sided by a Government decision.

John Moriarty fits free cavity wall and loft insulation at low-income homes in Leyland and surrounding area, but worries he may have to start letting staff go or call it a day all together after a change in the way large power companies are operating.

His firm, EH Energy Ltd, based in Heaton Street, Leyland, is paid by large energy companies for fitting the insulation, as the work helps the firms meet Government carbon emission savings targets.
