Wealthier homes to get twice as much cost-of-living support claim think tank

Evesham Editorial 13th Sep, 2022   0

RICHER households will receive twice as much support aimed at reducing the cost of living than poorer households next year, a think tank has claimed.

The Resolution Foundation said if the government cuts National Insurance and limits energy bill rises, richer homes will get £4,700 in 2023, compared to £2,200 for the poorest.

A typical household energy bill will be limited to £2,500 annually until 2024.

The think tank said “details and costings” were missing from the plan.




The huge support scheme could cost up to £150bn, but Prime Minister Liz Truss has refused to put a figure on it, saying “extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures”.
