Poor hit hardest by price inflation

The cost of living has been rising more quickly for the poorest households as a result of higher energy and food bills.

The TUC said CPI inflation for the poorest tenth of households in February was 4.1%, compared to 3.3% for the richest 10%. Poorer families have been hit because they spend a larger proportion of income on food and utilities.
