Cold weather payments down

Post by Gullible » Sat Mar 10, 2018 8:52 am

Almost a million fewer pensioners are eligible for emergency cold weather payments than when the Tories took power, figures show.
Around 1.7million people on Pension Credit could qualify for Cold Weather Payments to help with fuel bills in winter 2017/18.
That was down from 2.6million in 2010/11, according to data requested by Labour from the independent House of Commons Library.
