Basingstoke’s MP, Maria Miller is raising awareness amongst Basingstoke constituents that they may still be eligible for Warm Home Discount for this winter, and that they should apply as soon as possible.

The Warm Home Discount is a scheme which allows some constituents a rebate of £140 off their electricity bill. Constituents may be eligible if they get the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit or if they are on a low income and meet British Gas’s criteria for the scheme. They can still qualify if they use a pre-pay or pay-as-you-go electricity meter.

Maria said “It’s not too late to see if you’re eligible for the Warm Home Discount, a one-off electricity payment of £140. I urge all constituents to contact British Gas to find out more and apply.”

Constituents who may be eligible and are British Gas customers should get in touch as soon as possible as the scheme will be closing soon,
