Government votes against a freeze on bills for households in Haslingden and Hyndburn
David Cameron had the chance to put hard-working people before the big energy companies. But once again hard-working people will rightly be asking why they have been left out in the cold, while David Cameron stands up for a privileged few.
Labour will not let the Government kick the problem of rip-off energy bills into the long grass.
As the recent price freeze announcement from SSE shows, Labour's freeze plan is possible - despite what David Cameron says to the contrary.
A Labour Government will break up the big energy companies, create genuine competition and make tariffs simpler and fairer. And until these reforms kick in, we will put a stop to unfair price rises by freezing energy bills until 2017, saving the average household £120.
