​Retail Minister told energy bills rising & retailers fear support will not go far enough

RGDATA and other representatives attending the Retail Forum told Minister Damien English that energy bills continue to spiral and retailers fear the proposed temporary support scheme of up to €10k per month will just not be enough to stop job losses and shop closures.

The Minister also agreed to have a special meeting on wage costs as concerns were raised about the many Government initiatives that were increasing employment costs at a time when inflation was impacting on sales and input costs.
