To relieve the French and in particular the most modest households in the face of rising inflation, the government is working on a purchasing power agenda to decide which aid must be maintained, and which must be withdrawn to relieve finances. public. Europe 1 takes stock.

It has become one of the main concerns of the French, and of the Élysée. Inflation, currently at 4.8%, is leading to a considerable rise in prices, particularly in energy and food, and this increase should reach 5.4% in June, or even more by the end of the month. ‘year. To respond to the growing concerns of the French, the government has drawn up a purchasing power agenda. A law is in preparation for this summer, but a complex equation must be resolved between the protection of purchasing power and public finances.

For the moment, what is recorded is that the tariff shield on energy is extended until the end of the year for gas and electricity. Everything else is still under consideration. On fuels, for example, there will indeed be aid after July 31, but which will be targeted at large rollers. No more 15 to 18 cents discount for everyone.

Measures that will cost the public finances dearly

Another measure on the table: the establishment of a food check. The idea at the start was to target healthy products grown in France. But to go quickly, the device will undoubtedly be less virtuous. He plans to pay around sixty euros to eight million French people this summer. In addition, the government has also undertaken to abolish the TV license fee this year, and to raise the index point for civil servants in July. And then, there are still outstanding points: will there be a rent freeze, for example?

This basket of measures will have a very heavy cost for public finances. An amending finance bill is also planned after the legislative elections.
