    Really? I had't heard that. Someone is going to come round from the government and remove them? Just cutting off the national gas supply is easier I suppose. How soon is 'soon'?

    I read somewhere that 85% of UK houses are currently heated by gas. So what's to happen to us all? Is the gas just going to be turned off and we'll just be left to shiver in the cold like latter day victims of the Highland clearances?

    It's beginning to sound very authoritarian too. Considering how much we've heard in recent years about the 'will of the people' being paramount why isn't a referendum planned on whether people want to surrender their gas heating when no alternative seems to be widely available?

    Gas boilers will be banned in new homes in England under an updated "Future Homes Standard", seeking to reduce carbon emissions by 78 percent by 2025. ... A previous deadline for banning gas boilers from new homes by the middle of the next decade had been set by former chancellor Philip Hammond.
