Gerry Brownlee has confirmed he is lifting the ban on traditional incandescent light bulbs.
I actually use eco-bulbs myself, but it is not the role of the state to tell people what sort of lightbulb to use, so long as they are safe. 2.5 million households all have different needs, and householders are quite competent at deciding for themselves what sort of lightbulbs to buy.
Personally I would advocate most people get ecobulbs – they save money and power. But I would also advocate most people vote National, and neither of my preferences should be made compulsory!Tags: Gerry Brownlee, light bulbs, Nanny State
