Many people in Britain suffer fuel poverty and ,as we know ,some even  have to choose between heating and eating . We know what our climate and our weather is like by now and it really is time that people should not have to suffer in this way. Efforts have been made,  by central and local government, by  charities and sometimes by the suppliers of gas and electricity to alleviate fuel poverty but the problem remains.   .One way to tackle this problem would be for all households to be granted a free allowance, set at a level that would enable people to afford a basic minimum level of heating during the colder half of the year.The level of allowance could be set according to part of the country and type of property . It  could be made conditional on willingness to co-operate in fuel efficiency measures. Usage above this level of consumption could remain chargeable. The gas and electricity suppliers could be given sufficient tax breaks and other subsidies for this to be affordable for them. It  should prove to  be a relatively simple and cost-effective effective method of fuel poverty reduction. The scheme should include corresponding provision for supply of coal ,wood or  oil for the minority that does not have gas or electric heating.
