ARE INCANDESCENT BULBS BEING DISCONTINUED?

The answer to this one is "YES". The traditional or old fashioned bulbs are being phased out in Britain in advance of the EU legislation. Many of the higher wattage bulbs are no longer available and the plan is to phase out all incandescent bulbs by 2012. They are considered inefficient and are being replaced by low energy fluorescent bulbs which are more cost effective and longer lasting.

Some specialist incandescent bulbs, such as the small bulbs used in cookers and fridges, are exempt from the regulations.
