100w lightbulb ban


The sign on the starburst in a variety/homewares shop in North Finchley reads: ‘Due to new EU regulations banning 100w and 150w light bulbs, wholesalers of light bulbs have doubled the price of 100w and 150w bulbs. We are sorry to have to increase the price of these items. We were allowed to purchase only limited stock of these items. Once the stock’s gone it’s gone.’
