Labour’s plan to keep energy bills low will save 12,049 households in Worthing West up to £600 over a year
Labour has slammed the Conservatives for a decade of dither, delay and poor planning on Britain’s energy sector – as well as calling for a windfall tax on North oil and gas to stop energy bills rising over the next year.
To address the immediate crisis, Labour would bring in fully-funded measures now to reduce the expected price rise in April – saving most households Worthing West around £200 or more.
But the party would also increase and expand the Warm Home’s Discount, targeting extra support to the squeezed middle, pensioners and the lowest earners, saving 12.049 households in Worthing West up to £600 off bills in total, and preventing all of the increase in energy bills currently expected.
Labour would pay for this plan with a one-off windfall tax on North Sea Oil and Gas producers who have profited from price rises.
