Gas prices have risen sharply and state support will end at the end of the month.
London. More than a quarter of tenants in the UK are already having trouble paying for heat as gas prices rise.
According to a Yukov survey conducted for the Shelter charity, 26 per cent of tenants, equivalent to 5.3 million people in the UK, do not have to pay for winter heating.
Energy prices are rising and the job retention plan ends Thursday, September 30, and social credit benefits will be reduced next week. Therefore, the shelter demands that urgent action be taken to evict the occupants and protect them from homelessness.
Fear of rising homelessness
According to Shelter Poly Need, a combination of these factors can be the last straw for many tenants who have trouble owning a home. He therefore fears an increase in homelessness and demands that the government take action before winter begins.
So far, the government has argued that its priority during the current gas crisis is consumer protection. Economy, Energy and Industry Minister Kwazi Quarteng said the energy price limit would remain in place. However, this will increase in early October and may increase the bills of some consumers.
Food or heating
In an interview with the BBC on Tuesday, Quarteng acknowledged that it would be a difficult winter for families.
“Our survey shows that a quarter of tenants can’t keep their home warm in the winter, even before this last price hike,” Neat said.
