National Fuel Poverty Charity Reaction to Advisory Group Reports Published Today

Reacting to the publication today (24 October 2016) of the final reports of the two short-life advisory groups set up by the Scottish Government to review fuel poverty in Scotland, the national fuel poverty charity Energy Action Scotland is urging Scottish Ministers to now reset the target to eliminate fuel poverty in Scotland.

Energy Action Scotland endorses the call to the Scottish Government by both the Scottish Fuel Poverty Strategic Working Group and the Scottish Rural Fuel Poverty Task Force for the new policy to “be firmly based on the principle of social justice”.
