Faulty Boiler Gas Valve

I have just had a sevice done on my 6 year old Worcester Greenstar 24i System Gas Boiler and have been told the Gas Valve can not be adjusted to the minimum pressure required to allow the emission test to be done, and so I need a new gas valve fitted at a cost of 260. The boiler appears to be working fine otherwise.
Do I really need a new valve or is there another reason for this problem?

I moved this to 'heating' (HVAC) for you---a boiler man is on line so hopefully he will see this---

Possibly the adjusting screw for the regulator is stripped/damaged/stuck so yes you need a new valve and it is important or it won't burn cleanly/properly or efficiently.
