Private Members' Motion Cost of Living Crisis

That this Assembly recognises the huge burden on workers and families as a result of the cost of living crisis; notes that the average annual gas bill has more than doubled over the past year, while electricity, oil and fuel prices have also soared; further recognises the impact on businesses of soaring energy and material costs which put jobs at risk; calls for the immediate formation of an Executive in order to allocate the £334 million funding, putting money into the pockets of workers, families, businesses and farmers, and for a budget to be agreed; and further calls on the British government to take meaningful action to help those struggling with rising costs, by placing a windfall tax on big energy corporations profiting from this crisis with funding redirected towards supports, and by cutting fuel duty and VAT on energy and fuel for the duration of this crisis.
