Give all households £1,000 towards soaring energy bills

The Times

Onward’s Head of Energy and Climate, Ed Birkett and lead author of ‘An Emergency Response to the Energy Crisis: a 5-point plan for the new Prime Minister‘ wrote an op-ed for The Times on how the next prime minster should tackle the energy crisis. He writes:

“households need help. Tax cuts will do little for the poorest: many simply earn too little to benefit. Instead, the Treasury should give every household £1,000 towards their energy bills and double it for those on means-tested benefits.”

“Without these emergency measures, the energy crisis could define the new PM’s term in office, and even cost them the next election.”
