Motion text

That this House is concerned about the spiralling cost of heating oil; shocked that the cost of heating oil has more than doubled in the last year from 42p per litre in June 2021 to 105p per litre now; notes that 5 per cent of homes in England use heating oil as their primary heating method and that most of those homes are in rural areas; notes that those households do not benefit from the price cap, as homes with mains gas heating do; calls on the government to introduce a cap on the price households pay per litre of heating oil to bring down bills; and further calls for the Government to absorb the cost of the cap to protect heating oil suppliers and protect competition in the market.
