GGF ‘set for fresh approach’
The Glass and Glazing Federation announced it is set for a fresh approach ahead of the imminent Cabinet re-shuffle under Boris Johnson.
Its Political Strategy Committee has already met to discuss the status, progress and future plans for its campaigns on fire safety, skills and training, energy efficiency in the light of recent political activity.
Former Chief Executive Kevin Buckley previously said of the imminent reshuffle: “When the new appointments are finalised - hopefully in the next few weeks – then we will approach the relevant ministers and key decision makers with fresh communications on our campaigns. In the meantime, we will continue to cascade any relevant information on the campaigns, Brexit and glazing in conservation areas as and when we have it.”
The federation has been active in a number of parliamentary and other policy arenas recently. Earlier this month, Technical Officer Adrian Blaydon, presented on “The Importance of Fire Resistant Glazing” at the All Party Parliamentary Group for Fire Safety in the House of Commons and delegates attended meetings with political partners Construction Products Association (CPA) and the National Home Improvement Council (NHIC) on shared political goals such as fire safety and improving energy efficiency in buildings as well as looking for ways to tackle the increasing problems around skilled labour shortages and training for the industry.
