I need to use some slang which the censor might object to, so I'll spell it the way my dear mama pronounces it:

I think he just couldn't be asked to do it ;)

Only thing I can suggest is that if you put a radiator into your conservatory it becomes a 'habitable room' and therefore the construction of the building needs to comply with the Building Regulations. So... after you have had your final visit from Building Control you can go to your local BSS and by a shiny new radiator and a few lengths of copper and get to work...

But I didn't tell you that.
We had a conservatory put up last year, our plumber who is a stickler for the regs, had no worries about putting rads in there.
