Fuel poverty: Household heating and lighting cut backs in the UK 2012

This statistic shows a measure of fuel poverty in the amount of households which had to make cut backs to save money on fuel for their home in 2012. Of the various methods, the most common were reducing the time that the heating was on, turning the heating down or off (although it was too cold) and turning out more lights than desired.

Did your household cut back on fuel use at home in any of these ways last winter, because you could not afford the costs?
