Pringle: €100 energy credit is ‘another missed opportunity’ from Government

Independent TD for Donegal, Thomas Pringle, said the Government’s plan for a €100 energy credit for all householders is another missed opportunity to help people who are struggling financially.

Deputy Pringle said: “Without means testing, this Government giveaway will go to everyone – whether or not they need it – and it goes straight into the pockets of energy companies.

“The Government should focus on developing a system that would support people who are in need, one that targets grants appropriately. People would be better served with that approach.

“A €100 credit will do little to help individuals and families who are struggling to meet rising energy costs and other cost-of-living increases.

“But with this Government, it’s always one inadequate ‘solution’ after the next,” Deputy Pringle said.
