fuel poverty

Sky News reports that Wales is the fuel poverty capital of Britain with 32% of households being 'fuel poor'.

The employment rate for Wales is approximately 67%

Are the two connected in any way?


UPDATE

The BBC have a different set of figures produced by Consumer Focus with over 41% of Welsh homes in 'fuel poverty'. That's quite a substantial difference in less than 12 hours.



Have a new raft of 'green' taxes been applied to fuel today to make it even more unaffordable?
