Boston and Skegness MP Mark Simmonds has said households in his constituency will welcome the buzz about the Government’s plans to lower energy bills.
Following Prime Minister David Cameron’s promise to take action to ensure people get the lowest tariffs for their bills, the Government this week announced plans to force energy suppliers to offer their customers the best deals.
Mr Simmonds said he believed that with more than £300 difference between the cheapest and the most expensive tariffs on the market, the PM’s action was likely to make a significant difference to people living in Boston.
“The Prime Minister promised to take action to get people the lowest tariffs and he has delivered. Households across Boston and Skegness will welcome this move to get their energy bills down.
“This action shows that the Government is serious about helping people with the cost of living. Along with tax cuts, council tax freezes and all time low interest rates protecting mortgage payments, this action on energy prices will really help with family budgets.”
Under the proposals, households will no longer face hundreds of tariffs as energy companies will be limited to four per fuel.
Energy companies would have to simplify their bills and outline personalised information on the cheapest tariff that they can offer.
