PM delivers on his promise to get people the lowest energy tariffs

James Arbuthnot, MP for North East Hampshire has welcomed Government plans to lower energy bills for hardworking people across the county.

Following the Prime Minister’s promise to take action to get people the lowest tariffs for their energy bills, this week the Government announced plans to force energy suppliers to offer their customers the best deals.

Under these proposals:

·         Households will no longer face hundreds of tariffs, with energy companies limited to four tariffs per fuel.

·         Energy companies will have to make bills simpler for customers to understand, and outline personalised information on the cheapest tariff that they can offer.

·         Households will be moved onto the cheapest tariff under their supplier that suits them.

With over £300 difference between the cheapest and the most expensive tariffs on the market, the Prime Minister’s action is likely to make a significant difference to local people here in [location] worried about their energy bills.

Commenting, James said:

‘The Prime Minister promised to take action to get people the lowest tariffs and he has delivered. My constituents have been very keen about this proposal, and have been writing to me urging the Government to take action. I am delighted that they have.

‘Households across North East Hampshire 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 payment,  this action on energy prices will really help with family budgets.’
