    Great news – If it happens !

    Households will see 100 euro knocked off their first electricity bills of the year under proposals being brought to Cabinet next week.

    It comes as data from the Central Statistics Office showed the annual rate of inflation rose to 5.3% in November, its highest in 20 years.

    The plan is being developed by Transport Minister Eamon Ryan, Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe and Public Expenditure Minister Michael McGrath.

    Minister Donohoe stressed that nothing had been agreed by Government during an appearance on Newstalk Breakfast on Friday.

    “Yes, we are looking at some options in relation to, ‘can we do something?’, particularly in relation to bills at the end of this year and the start of next year,” he said.

    “I can’t confirm some of the things that have been reported here today because they haven’t gone to Government yet.”

    Unsure why the monetary value is expressed in Euro’s (€) I assume a deal with EDF etc. will be struck ?

    Hiya,

    Could it be euros because it has “Dublin” in the link? They are on Euros no?

    So maybe not for UK
