star this property answer text <p>My rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy met with the Honda Executives in London on 18 February, just ahead of Honda’s initial announcement to close its Swindon plant on 19 February. Since then, the Secretary of State has chaired a taskforce consisting of local leaders, MPs and trade unions, to provide support to Honda’s 3,500 strong workforce and other businesses who would be affected by the loss of Honda’s plant in Swindon.</p><p>Through the taskforce we are determined to work together to ensure that Swindon continues its record of attracting investment from advanced manufacturers, maintaining and creating highly skilled jobs that offer fulfilling careers for many years to come. That will include engaging closely with parties interested in future uses of the site in Swindon owned by Honda.</p><p>The taskforce, led by local partners will actively assess and focus on minimising potential impacts of Honda closing its manufacturing operations, embracing future economic opportunities before, during and after Honda close their site. Honda has stated that they will retain a significant operational presence in the UK, and through a network of over 800 dealerships and distributors. Their European HQ will remain in the UK and their ongoing R&amp;D presence in the UK will continue, as will their Formula 1 operations.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department keeps delivery progress in constant review. ECO3 is a three and a half year scheme and obligated suppliers may deliver the obligation at any time during the obligation period. Historically, delivery has been low at the start of each scheme while suppliers end one obligation period and start to build up momentum under the new scheme rules.</p><p>The scheme allows participating Local Authorities to determine eligibility and refer households to obligated suppliers, and in those cases removing the need for suppliers to target eligible households. This is a voluntary mechanism for suppliers to use, and it equates to up to 25% of ECO.</p><p>The regulations have been in force for less than six months, and there is time for suppliers to increase delivery rate up to the end of the scheme in March 2022.</p><p>Almost 2.5m insulation, heating and other measures have been delivered since ECO began in 2013. Of those 66% were for insulation. Under ECO3, so far over 54k measures have been installed. Of those, 55% were for insulation.</p>
