Energy bills reprise
The government has announced a £9.1 billion package to support families with their energy bills, giving households a £350 boost – helping people across the country with the cost of living.
- As the UK economy continues its recovery from the pandemic, we must confront the global inflationary pressures caused by the world economy coming swiftly back to life.
- With Ofgem announcing a rise to the Energy Price Cap, the government has responded with a three-part plan to help with household fuel bills immediately – worth £350 per household, in a total package of support worth £9.1 billion.
- Without this direct government action, the coming months would be very tough for millions of families – this package of measures will deliver support in the fastest and fairest way to households across the country.
