Wall of Support is building momentum


ELECT has welcomed a number of Member businesses to the Wall of Support as our ongoing crusade for regulation of the electrical industry continues to gather momentum. We’ve responded


to demand from the industry by allowing qualified electricians to add a digital ‘brick’ to the online resource to show their support for protection of title. Some 17 SELECT Member firms from across Scotland have now put forward their names to show their support, ranging from individual electricians to large electrical businesses. Among them is Atalian Servest AMK, whose Director Mike Stark said: “It is vitally important that consumers are helped to make informed choices whenever they employ an electrician. That’s why I am backing SELECT’s campaign to regulate electricians by introducing protection of title for the

Retentions report could lead to a ‘cash lifeline’


SELECT has hailed a new report on cash retentions as “a potential game-changer” – and says its recommendations could lead to greater reinvestment in the industry. Te association says the


in-depth review by the short life working group (SLWG) could bring an end to the practice of withheld retention payments and deliver “an essential


financial lifeline” for contractors. Among its many practical


proposals submitted to the Scottish Government, the new report recommends a retention deposit scheme, the introduction of best practice policy and automatic release of


retentions as early as possible. SELECT President Donald W Orr said: “Te issue of retentions is one that has blighted the industry for many years, and this report makes


it clear that there is a widely-held belief that change


is long overdue.
