Responding to the government’s Autumn Statement, Heidi Chow, Executive Director at Debt Justice said:  

“The chancellor has failed to address the sweeping debt crisis that is engulfing households across the country. The government’s ideological obsession with austerity and its plan to raise the energy price cap will plunge even more people into unmanageable debt.  

We need a write-off of energy debts, funded by the windfall tax, to enable millions of people to escape the debt trap.  “
