Moyle Council votes to support the Fuel Poverty Coalition

11 10 2011

 

 

Moyle District Council at their meeting on 10th October voted unanimously to support the Fuel Poverty Coalition.

Households are considered to be in ‘fuel poverty’ if they would have to spend more than 10% of their household income on fuel to keep their home in a ‘satisfactory’ condition.

It is a disgrace that in the 21st Century, due primarily to the soaring energy prices people are being forced into having to choose between heating their homes or eating.

The  Fuel Poverty Coalition is calling on the Assembly Executive to put its Fuel Poverty strategy back on track and to ensure that everything reasonably practicable is done to eliminate fuel poverty here.

Therefore, the  Fuel Poverty Coalition is calling on the Assembly Executive to:

1. Develop a detailed and costed action-plan setting out how and when Fuel Poverty will be eradicated
2. Provide Support to all fuel poor households to stay warm until Fuel Poverty is eradicated

 Fuel Poverty will be one of the great struggles faced in society in the next 10 years.  There appears no light at the end of the tunnel – just a bleak cold existence for so many of our fellow citizens.
