Impose A New Tax On The Excess Profits of Energy Companies

Recently there have been unprecedented rises in energy prices with further rises planned for October 2022 meaning energy suppliers are passing on rising costs to consumers while Britain's big six energy companies have banked more than £7bn in the last five years.   Yet many of the country's households are struggling to pay soaring gas and electric bills.  It is essential  for households to be able to heat their homes to a safe level, but too many householders are being forced to make decisions about whether to heat or eat! It is clear the Government need to do more to address this!
