Fuel billing system 'leading to deaths'

Fuel billing system 'leading to deaths'

The system for calculating most domestic fuel bills in the UK is contributing to thousands of deaths each winter, public health experts say.

The UK Public Health Association says two-tier tariffs - where the first units cost more - penalise the poorest.

It wants the "iniquitous" price system changed so cheaper units come first.

Energy firms say this would hit many vulnerable people who are at home all day and that they spent £150m helping vulnerable customers last year.

Every year the cold weather brings illness and death. Across the UK each winter there are, on average, more than 30,000 fatalities caused by low temperatures.
