Pensioners Cut Food To Pay Heating

According to a new report by the Institute For Fiscal Studies, poor pensioner households are having to cut their food expenditure in order to pay for heating.

The report found that all retired households raised their fuel payments by 7% during the winter and food had to be cut to make up for the extra payments.

This report is a worrying statistic when considering the fact that Government has cut the winter fuel payment and Scottish Power are increasing their prices.
