On May 1st 2014 the Irish Fine Gael Labour party government intends to increase Carbon Tax from €10 to €20 per tonne on solid fuel.
What this means is that the price of a bag of coal will increase by €1.20 which will result in the closure of retail outlets and an increase in fuel poverty across the state.
This petition is an appeal to the government to abandon plans to increase this tax.
