While most of us support any moves that improves energy efficiency in London, I am extremely concerned about complete phasing out of traditional lightbulbs.
For most people, energy saving bulbs will cut costs and help save the environment. But for some Londoners - namely those who have eye conditions relating to light sensitivity - these new bulbs present a serious problem.
This problem will get worse if the EU implements the Light Directive which will ban the old bulbs completely. I am very keen to hear from Londoners who will be negatively affected by this. We are campaigning for at least an exemption for those who can demonstrate a medical need for traditional bulbs.
