E.ON price rise today - Greatrex

18 January 2013

Tom GreatrexTom Greatrex MP, Labour's Shadow Energy Minister, commenting on E.ON's 8.7% price rise, which comes into force today, said:

"For millions of hardworking families E.ON's price rise will be a bitter blow, and they deserve better than this out of touch government. David Cameron has done nothing to challenge the unfair and untransparent way the energy market is run, which means no-one really knows what the true cost of energy is.

"We need a One Nation Labour government to break the dominance of the energy giants, open up the energy market, protect vulnerable customers from being ripped off and create a tough new energy regulator with the power to force energy companies to pass on savings to consumers."
