The boiler scrappage scheme works on a "first come, first served" basis. The funding will be exhausted when there is insufficient resource available to support the issuing of further vouchers under the £50 million allocated to the scheme. The scheme has been very popular. Any decision on the provision of additional funding for the scheme would be a matter for consideration as part of the usual budgetary cycle.
