I thought your question was
"are lamp fittings going to be banned"
there is a difference between lamps and lamp fittings.
Yes lamps will be banned.
No lamp fittings wont be banned.
I you like incandesant lamps,
Then stockpile while you can.

If that statement is false, than please correct me. Otherwise, if that statement is true, I don't care what other yet-to-be-invented bulbs the media is promising will be developed. I simply want to be able to use the particular bulbs that the government is disallowing. Therefore, I will stockpile.
