Caroline Flint MP, Labour’s Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, commenting on British Gas’s announcement that they will increase gas prices by 8.4% and electricity prices by 10.4% from 23 November 2013, said:
“These latest price rises show clearer than ever why Labour’s price freeze is needed. People are sick and tired of being left out of pocket because of David Cameron’s failure to stand up to the energy companies.
“Britain’s energy market isn’t working for ordinary families and businesses. Labour’s energy freeze will save money for 27 million households and 2.4 million businesses and our plans to reset the market will deliver fairer prices in the future.”
