Commenting on today’s (Thursday) energy price cap announcement, TUC General Secretary Paul Nowak said:
“This is the last thing families need as we approach Christmas.
“Energy bills are already 50% higher than two years ago. And this year minsters have removed any government support with energy costs— so today’s rise will just hammer households even harder.
“It didn’t have to be this way.
“The Conservatives could have helped bring down bills by imposing a proper windfall tax on the likes of Shell and BP. But they left billions on the table.
“And instead of investing in improvements for draughty homes, they have left people out in the cold.”
