Spiralling energy and gas bills are crippling households
GMB, the energy union, has described today’s energy price cap rise as ‘symptomatic of the UK’s broken energy system’.
Energy regulator Ofgem today [Thursday] said the typical annual household bill would go up from £1,834 to £1,928, a rise of £94 or 5 per cent.
Andy Prendergast, GMB National Secretary, said:
"Yet another rise in the cap is symptomatic of the UK’s broken energy system.
"Ministers are celebrating the fact inflation is falling, yet spiralling energy and gas bills are crippling households across the country.
"A negligent lack of a coherent energy strategy during the past decade and more has left us with no control over this vital resource.”
