The Conservatives (H) believe that the state’s help to electricity customers is not good enough. Now they will present a separate proposal which, among other things, would give an extra NOK 1000 to the unemployed and laid off.
“We propose to give NOK 1000 to the unemployed, laid off, and those on work clearance support,” the Conservative Party’s second deputy leader Tina Bru told the newspaper VG.
She believes the government’s December electricity package is not good enough for those with the worst personal finances and ordinary people.
Before Christmas, Jonas Gahr Støre’s government presented a package in which the state covers the bill for 55% of the price over 70 øre per kilowatt-hour in a month. The electricity bill that most people received this week is the first to be covered by this scheme.
