The SNP’s Fuel Poverty Bill, world-leading legislation passed with the unanimous backing of MSPs this week, is a massive step in tackling fuel poverty and will help make a real difference to the lives of people in Clydesdale.

Under the plans no more than 5% of households in Scotland will be in fuel poverty by 2040 – ensuring families in Clydesdale who struggle to heat their homes are given the right support.

By the end of 2021 the SNP Government will have invested over £1 billion to tackle fuel poverty and improve the energy efficiency of Scottish houses.

The SNP is fully committed to tackling fuel poverty across Scotland – this world-leading legislation will go a long way in helping to support low income households here in Clydesdale.

This bill is designed to work for everyone regardless of where in Scotland they live. Scotland is now among only a handful of European nations to have legally defined fuel poverty – linking the definition to household incomes and the higher cost of living in rural and island areas.

This will help make a real difference to the lives of people in Clydesdale.
