Press comment – for immediate release
£2,500 energy bills will still drive people into debt
Responding to the announcement from Prime Minister Liz Truss that the government will reduce the energy price cap to £2,500 for the next two years, Heidi Chow, Executive Director at Debt Justice said:
“Despite this intervention, energy bills will almost double for millions of households this year. Coming at a time of falling incomes and soaring inflation, energy bills are still unaffordable and will force more people into debt. The government must write off energy debts that have already built up to give people in debt a fighting chance of surviving this winter.”
