Half price insulation for all households -
helping people with soaring gas and electricity bills.

 

 

Gordon Brown has agreed a £910m package of measures with the big energy companies aimed at helping people with soaring gas and electricity bills.


It includes half price insulation for all households and a freeze on this year's bills for the poorest families.


Pensioners and unemployed people with young children will get an extra £16.50 a week if there is a severe winter.


But the measures were attacked as "ridiculous" by the unions, who want a windfall tax on the energy giants.


The package includes:


Free cavity wall and loft insulation for pensioners and poor households


50% off cost of insulation for all households


Freeze on this year's bills for half a million poor consumers


Partial reversal of cut to warm front programme giving free central heating to poorest pensioners


Cold weather payments to go up from £8.50 a week to £25 a week for pensioners, disabled people and unemployed families with children under five - if temperatures drop below zero for seven consecutive days more
