Today marks a pivotal moment in our commitment to the well-being of our community. I am pleased to announce the introduction of a groundbreaking bill aimed at ensuring the safety and security of our most vulnerable members. In a move to address the critical issues of fuel poverty and electrical dangers, I have brought forward a bill that mandates energy suppliers to provide free electrical safety checks for those in need.
The motivation behind this initiative is clear: the duty to shield vulnerable individuals from the devastating consequences of fuel poverty and electrical hazards that can ignite destructive fires.
Fuel poverty is an unsettling reality for many, forcing individuals to choose between heating their homes and putting food on the table. This choice is one that no one should have to make.
Through this bill, we are addressing these concerns head-on, ensuring that preventative measures are in place to safeguard our communities.
As we champion this cause, let us rally together to support a future where vulnerable members of our society are no longer left in the shadows. Together, we can make a difference—one safety check at a time.
