North Belfast MP Nigel Dodds has called on the Government to focus on the needs of households who are not connected to mains gas and are heavily dependent on home heating oil.

He raised the issue during Business Questions in the House of Commons, calling for a debate to explore ways to help people and the assistance available.

“‘There has been a great deal of focus recently on energy companies and attempts to curtail the rising costs of energy for households.

“Given the increased cost of living and pressures on budgets everyone would welcome this, but attention should also be given to the many homes who are not connected to the gas grid and are heavily dependent on home heating oil,” the DUP deputy leader said.
