Lib Dems lead the way on tackling fuel poverty

August 1, 2008

Nick Perry, Lib Dem parliamentary campaigner for Hastings & Rye, has welcomed Vince Cable’s recent policy announcement on fuel poverty.

Amongst other ideas, Lib Dems are demanding that energy companies use their £9bn windfall to mitigate the effects of price rises for our most vulnerable citizens. The windfall has been due to the giveaway of free permits to emit Carbon Dioxide under the European Union’s Emissions Trading Scheme.

Nick says, “As usual Vince Cable is ahead of the field in terms of his ideas to create a truly social market.

“Time after time it is the Lib Dems who are coming up with the policy directions needed to protect our poorest and most vulnerable citizens. These proposals on fuel poverty are another great example of this.”
