Energy bills to rise to £3,000 a year from April

HELP with energy costs has been extended for all households, but at a less generous level, meaning millions will still face higher bills reports the BBC.

The bill for a typical household will rise to £3,000 in April, from £2,500 now, Chancellor Jeremy Hunt announced.

Without this help, average bills would have gone up to about £3,740, according to analyst estimates.

Mr Hunt also announced additional cost-of-living payments for the most vulnerable.

He said this meant an extra £900 for households on means-tested benefits, £300 to pensioners, and £150 for people on disability benefit.

There will also be an extra £1bn given to councils to help those “who might otherwise fall through the cracks”.

The extra £500 is the Liz Truss factor. The shortest serving and most costly Prime Minister in history and Conservative Party members put her in charge despite warnings from credible organisations that her plans were disastrous. I used to think Conservative Party members were intelligent!
