ALDERMAN George Robinson MLA has welcomed the launch of a campaign opposing the cut in winter fuel payments.

“The recently launched campaigned by Age Sector Platform encourages people to oppose the cut in the fuel payment down to £100 this year,” he said.

“At a time of financial strain it is morally wrong to deprive the older people in society with help in keeping warm.

“I have a number of postcards size forms in the office for people to register their opposition to the fuel payment cut if they wish to come and collect one, or there is an option to go online at to register your opposition”.
