Officials have consulted stakeholder representatives during the continued policy development of the energy affordability schemes to understand whether there is a robust method for itinerant liveaboard boaters to provide proof that their boat is their main or sole residence so they can claim this support. Officials are continuing these discussions and will update relevant stakeholders with further information once any decision has been made.
