8.       Notice of Motion from Councillor Laura Brennan-Whitefield, seconded by Councillor Brian Connolly:-


          "We are currently living in a cost-of-living crisis, with energy costs becoming an increasing concern for many members of our community. For some of our most vulnerable members of society they have no choice but to accept prepayment meters which are often imposed and are often more expensive than other options such as a direct debit or simply playing for the energy you use as the average standing charges are higher.


          South Ayrshire Council requests that the chief executive writes to the energy regulator Ofgem to request that this issue is looked at urgently and that prices for prepayment meters are brought into line with other payment options so that those who are most economically vulnerable are not paying more for basic utilities."
