The Government is planning to take more steps to help consumers tackle the rising cost of living especially the spike in energy costs.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin and Tánaiste Leo Varadkar have both spoken on the issue.
The Opposition have regularly accused the Coalition of not doing enough to help off-set a spike in inflation.
Mr Martin said that the coalition Government is “conscious” about the rising cost of living, and how much of it is energy related.
He told his party’s TDs, Senators and MEPs that they are examining “a range of measures”, including reducing Government charges, in order to enable people to protect their disposable incomes.
Mr Varadkar told a Fine Gael parliamentary party meeting that the planned €113 energy rebate “isn’t enough” to counter rising energy prices.
He also mentioned the potential of lowering Government fees and charges – saying rising inflation and higher prices means more needs to be done to help families.
The issue of helping households deal with a spike in energy bills, and other costs, has been regularly raised by Opposition parties in recent months.
Sinn Féin, Labour, the Social Democrats and Independent TDs have all branded the Coalition as being “out of touch” on the issue.
