A statement from a representative of the parties after the meeting will allocate € 342 million for various aid measures.
Arvils Ašeradens (new unification) said support measures to compensate for inflation should be divided into two groups. The first provides additional support for low-income residents, such as faster pension indexing and increased housing allowances. The increase in heating is intended to partially compensate all Latvian residents. In other words, this aid is not targeted at any particular population group.
The largest aid of € 150 million is intended to offset the increase in central heating costs, while € 35 million is intended to partially offset the increase in gas heating costs. increase. Households that heat their homes with wood, pellets, chips, or heat pumps are also planned to support partial reimbursement of increased heating.
Welfare Minister Gatis Eglitis said the government’s planned support for households is essential, but it is not possible to compensate all households for increased heating. “People have to expect an increase in billing,” Eglītis said.
Government representatives said the € 342 million planned for partial compensation for inflation was intended to be taken from reserves, but how much it would increase the Latvian government’s budget deficit. I couldn’t say if I would. You will find out more about this on Tuesday, June 21, when the government will see an information report on the Ministry of Health’s aid measures.
