As energy bills are to surge by more than 50% tomorrow, Green Party co-leader Adrian Ramsay said:
“People are already struggling under the rising cost of living and tomorrow will mark another blow to those who are forced to choose between heating and eating.
“While people are bearing the brunt of spiralling energy costs, oil and gas companies are raking in unprecedented profits. We need an immediate tax on those companies’ dirty profits to raise money to provide immediate financial support.
“The Government has utterly failed to help people in fuel poverty and there is now no Government funding that homeowners can access to help them with insulation.
“We need an immediate plan to insulate every home in the country that needs it and ramp up renewable energy provision, so that we are no longer reliant on oil and gas.
“That retrofit revolution is the only sustainable way to bring down the cost of living, while also benefitting those on lowest incomes and creating green jobs.”
