All out assault on fuel poverty

The Workers Party has suported calls for an all out assault on fuel poverty in Northern Ireland.

Recent figures reveal that 44% of local households cannot afford to heat their homes.

The stark reality is that while insulation and energy efficiency schemes have been helpful, almost one home in two does not have enough income to adequately heat their home.

The Assembly must put tackling fuel poverty at the top of its agenda, take immediate steps to alleviate the burden this winter and commit to the elimination of his wholly unacceptable and unnecessary social outrage, the Party has demanded.
