生活成本。超過三分之一的人削減了必需品的開支

一項新的調查顯示,在英格蘭、威爾士和蘇格蘭,超過三分之一的人正在削減食品和必需品,以幫助解決生活成本。

國家統計局的最新數據表明,每10人中有9人--或約4600萬人--在上個月看到他們的生活成本上升。

在3月底和6月19日之間進行的研究表明,超過一半的人正在減少他們在家裡使用的天然氣和電力,這一數字上升到近6/10的老年人,年齡在55至74之間。

數據還表明,57%的人看到他們的生活成本上升,正在減少非必需品的支出,42%的人正在減少非必需品的車輛行程。

一位政府發言人說。"我們不斷採取行動幫助家庭,全年分階段提供價值370億英鎊的支持,其中包括幫助人們度過未來困難的冬季的具體支持......每個人在冬季將收到400英鎊,以幫助解決能源賬單。"

"這是一個很大的額外支出,"她說,並補充說,這意味着 "我們在生活中想要的任何假期或額外費用,我們都無法做到。"

根據國家統計局的研究,在那些看到生活成本上升的人中,近四分之一的人說他們用儲蓄來支付他們的費用,13%的人報告說比平時使用更多的信貸。

"在今年餘下的時間和明年,我們將需要花費更多的錢來支持家庭,因為能源賬單進一步上升。"


More than a third of people across England, Wales and Scotland are cutting back on food and essentials in order to help with the cost of living, a new survey has shown.

The latest figures from the ONS suggest 9 in 10 - or around 46 million people - have seen their cost of living go up in last month.

The research, carried out between the end of March and June 19th, suggests that more than half are reducing how much gas and electricity they use at home, with that figure rising to nearly 6 in 10 older people, aged between 55 and 74.

The data also suggested that 57% of people who had seen their cost of living go up were spending less on non-essential items and 42% were cutting back on non-essential journeys in their vehicles.

A Government spokesperson said: "We have continually taken action to help households by phasing in £37 billion worth of support throughout the year, which includes specific support to help people through the difficult winter ahead... everyone will receive £400 over the winter to help with energy bills."

"It's a big additional outgoing," she says, adding that it means "any holidays or extras we want in our lives, we're unable to do."

According to the ONS research, of those who were seeing a rise in their cost of living, nearly a quarter said they had used savings to cover their costs, and 13% reported using more credit than usual.

"We are going to need to spend a lot more money on supporting households over the rest of this year and next as energy bills rise even further."
