Officials are still working to determine if there is a robust method for itinerant liveaboard boaters to provide proof that their boat is their main or sole residence so they can receive energy bills support whilst protecting public funds from fraud. The Government is working to resolve this issue and will communicate any decision with stakeholder associations who represent these households when it has been made.
