Adam Scorer, chief executive of fuel poverty charity National Energy Action says:
‘If the Chancellor announces average annual energy bills will stay around £2,500 instead of soaring to £3,000, National Energy Action will welcome the news. But that still means bills have more than doubled since start of the crisis. And it would still leave 7.5 million UK households in fuel poverty.
‘Low-income households don’t just need prices to stay the same. The need for targeted support for the most vulnerable households is as urgent as ever and unless we tackle the least efficient housing stock in Europe, the poorest households will simply not be able to afford a warm and safe home.’
