Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader of Portsmouth City Council Suzy Horton said: "We know the cost of living crisis is impacting so many people in Portsmouth. For lots of people, making ends meet is becoming more and more difficult. This is immediate help that we can give people right now, but we know this will only go so far. The Government must intervene and get a grip on the spiralling costs many people are facing."
