The following is a statement issued by Ulster Farmers Union (UFU) following today’s Judicial Review Judgment:

The Ulster Farmers’ Union says it is disappointed with today’s judgement when the vast majority of people using the scheme were doing so legitimately. It says these people installed boilers to reduce energy costs, and were encouraged to do so by the department responsible for the scheme.

 

The UFU added that it’s role would be to ensure a fair solution for its members who had invested in a scheme with a long term commitment that it would reduce energy costs.
