"– We have enough petat in the Swedish national psyche, " says Peter Fransson on the Board."
"Peter Fransson, head of department at the national housing Board, admits that they was right surprised at all the reactions they got on the new rules presented at the end of 2017."
"– We have enough petat in the Swedish national psyche, " he says."
"It took a while before it dawned on people what the proposals meant," he says. But then it became all the more hubbub. Vedspisupproret started in the beginning of 2018, and got instantly up to 20 000 dedicated members."
" They were out for consultation first, but then we got no reactions."
"Far from reality"
"He believes that it is about the conflict between city and country."
"– You think that we sit and decide far away from reality. But this Vedspisupproret is a well-informed and committed group."
"Now, the government has been rebuffed in vedspisfrågan, it is in all cases so Peter Fransson want to see it. But the question has ended up in the Swedish knee again, " he says."
" Yes, well, we have also gotten a little rebuffed, we shall investigate the consequences again. A little deeper this time, we'll deal with the cultural aspects, as well as beredskapsaspekter."
"In June, a final result which will be out on the referral. What it will mean is too early to say now, " he explains."
"But the argument that Vedspisupproret submits does not play into the investigation, which is being done now," he explains."
"– No, they do not. We have been contracted by the government, it is the one that decides in the end. the government has not asked us to change the rules, but we are also looking at it in parallel, otherwise the new rules come into force in October, " says Peter Fransson."
"the Government has given the Board a mandate to complete the investigation of the consequences of Planning's revised rules for space heaters, including wood stoves. The assignment only applies to the used space heaters installed in existing homes."
"the Board will now examine:
"– consequences for the individual."
"– how the cultural aspects are affected"
"– how the environment, climate and health are affected"
"– how the crisis preparedness are affected"
"– the question of fire - "
"– the new rules of importance in an international context,"
"– how manufacturers and companies dealing with second-hand space are affected."
"A final result of the investigation is to be completed in June and sent out on referral. In september, the results of the investigation are reported."
