Stephen McPartland MP
Working hard for you
in Stevenage, Knebworth, Codicote, Datchworth and Aston

Paul von der Heyde, Chairman of the British Furniture Confederation said "we do not seek any advantage for ourselves, only a level playing field. However, with the current subsidies granted to the power generation industry there is clearly a damaging imbalance. This undermines our industry and many others who create value and employment  from a limited timber resource, as opposed to those who simply burn it."


British Furniture Manufacturing generates £7.3bn of GDP (almost 3% of Britain’s manufacturing output).  It is now suffering an extraordinary increase in the cost of its prime raw material as a consequence of the poorly thought through woody biomass subsidies paid to energy producers.
