"This is the best competition I've been to ever in my life. I don't think anything will ever top this."
A HMRC spokesperson said: "We are very disappointed by the timing of the decision by PCS to call a strike to coincide with the tax credits renewals deadline."
Nigel Rees, GGF Group chief executive, said: "The sudden closure of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund is a disappointment as it was intended to last for a long period of time and offer stability, yet it has ended after roughly two months from its inception. It has done virtually nothing for the window industry as homeowners only qualified for the fund, if they were replacing single glazing.  This was a relatively pointless requirement because there’s very little single glazing in owner occupier homes.  It’s fair to say, no other industry had such a proviso put upon them and yet again the window industry has been offered practically nothing from this initiative. With such low impact during its existence there will be no difference to the window industry now that it has closed."
"Finally," said Smith. "It has not been going so well recently. We played well. We controlled the match and never looked like being over-powered by them. The only times Wales looked dangerous was when we chose the wrong option."
