Fuel Poverty

Speaking in today’s debate on the Queen’s Speech, Jamie has called on the UK and Scottish Government’s to factor fuel poverty into welfare payments.

In the Far North those in receipt of benefits are facing disproportionately higher heating bills than anywhere else in the country and they simply don’t have any other choice.

Fuel poverty must be factored in when assessing welfare payments so the most vulnerable in society are not left cold in their own homes.
