Poll: Should university students receive £150 cost of living payment?


On 10 February, the Scottish Government announced 3/4 of Scottish households would be given £150 payment to tackle the rising cost of living and energy bills.


The cash is directed to households in council tax bands A to D and all of those eligible for council tax reduction.


Those exempt from the council tax, such as university students, are not eligible for the grant.


There have been criticisms to this decision from the National Union of Students, which argue the grant should be extended to students as well. Answer our poll scanning the code!
