Polish government admits households will be affected by rising costs

Mateusz Morawiecki, the prime minister, has admitted that Polish households will be affected by rising costs of energy, but said part of these costs will be covered by energy companies.

Households will be affected by an increase, but the Polish state has already covered a large part of the increase, for example through the law on coal subsidies, according to Morawiecki after a cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

The prime minister said that energy companies must cover a part of the raise by reducing their demands for higher tariffs.

He said they can't be left untouched during this crisis.

The government has recently decided to give one-off subsidies of PLN 3,000 EUR 637 for households that use coal as the main source of heating.
