Petition Summary

The British Government has, according to the petitioner, decided to abolish the payment of a sum intended to provide assistance for winter heating to British citizens living in Cyprus, France, Gibraltar, Greece, Malta, Portugal or Spain. The justification given is that the average winter temperature in these countries is higher than in warmer parts of Britain. The petition protests against this change. He believes that Britain is violating Article 226 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union..
