Paying More to be Poor

Citizens Advice Scotland has published a report on their research into the poverty premium. This research investigated causes and manifestations of the poverty premium in energy, telecoms, credit, loans and insurance in Scotland and examines some of the impacts it can have on the lives of low income consumers. The report identifies a number of steps that the CSA should take to alleviate the problem, working with government and third sector organisations as well as suppliers and regulators in the energy, telecommunications, finance sectors.
