The UK government will deliver the £400 Energy Bill Support Scheme to people living in Northern Ireland, the Northern Ireland Executive (NIE) Finance Minister, Conor Murphy, has confirmed.

Under this scheme, all households with a domestic electricity supply are eligible for a £400 discount to help them with their energy bills. 

While the scheme will now be extended to Northern Ireland, this is expected to start at a later date than in other parts of the UK.
