Bank charges: Radical measures required to avoid fuel poverty

There should be radical measures implemented by the government to avoid homes ending up in fuel poverty, according to Consumer Focus.

Mike O'Connor, the organisation's chief executive said in response to the annual report from the Fuel Poverty Advisory Group (FPAG) that determined action must be taken or else the prevalence of the issue will continue to increase, leaving Brits with less money to cover other costs such as bank charges.

"Current government plans for energy efficiency schemes are inadequate to deal with the scale of the fuel poverty problem," he said.

"Millions of older people, families and people with disabilities will be left living in cold homes and struggling to afford their bills unless extra measures are taken."
Therefore, a better energy efficiency programme is integral to bring down fuel poverty levels, as well as inspire economic growth, generate jobs and cut carbon emissions, which he explains is a "win-win" for the government.

Whitehall is set to receive £4 billion every year in carbon taxes over the next 15 years, of which a proportion could be used help create the programme.
