Elisabeth Borne, Tuesday, June 7, announced that aid would be paid at the beginning of the school year for those who are the least fortunate and face increasing food prices.
France Bleu, the Prime Minister, explains that "In an emergency with inflation, it'll be aid paid directly to the bank account all at once, naturally taking account of the number of children within the family".
She added that "a reflection" would be launched on "a targeted device in order to allow all French citizens to have access to quality products and organic products".
Emmanuel Macron has made a campaign promise to deliver on his promise of a food voucher that allows the purchase of organic, sustainable, or local food products. This idea has been repeated among the Citizens' Convention proposals and is even included in the Climate and Resilience Law of the summer 2021. However, it has not been implemented.
Therefore, the government chose to use "two devices", namely an aid for inflation and a reflection on this food check.
The fuel prices increased again in June. They surpassed the EUR 2 mark for the SP95–E10 at the beginning of June. This is a rise of more than 13 cents per Liter.
Elisabeth Borne stated that to combat inflation, the government would increase the 18 cents pump reduction until the end the summer. Only if majority settles in the National Assembly on June 12th and 19th.
The head of government added that "for those who travel a lot each day to get to work, or as part their work", a system will be in place (...) at school year's beginning to accompany them".
