Energy and debt crisis PM’s top priority
Responding to the election of Liz Truss as the new Conservative party leader and UK Prime Minister, Heidi Chow, Executive Director at Debt Justice, said:
“The government has been shrugging its shoulders in the face of astronomical energy bills as fear of financial catastrophe and hardship has gripped the nation. Prime Minister Liz Truss can delay no more.
The government needs to expand the windfall tax on energy producers to freeze energy prices and pay off the £2bn of energy debt that UK households have already taken on to give everyone a fighting chance of keeping the lights on this winter.”
