Labour proposed amendments to the Conservative government’s Energy Bill that would have cut customers’ bills by £93 billion, make Britain energy secure and end, once and for all, the Tories’ ban on onshore wind in England. This would put us on the path to becoming a clean energy superpower by 2030. The government refused to support them.
Every family and business in Britain have paid the price of the Conservatives’ failed energy policy which has left Britain as the worst hit country in Western Europe during the energy crisis. Every family and business are paying the price, in higher energy bills, of 13 years of failed Tory energy policy.
The tragedy is that while Labour focuses on lower bills and good jobs, Rishi Sunak has decided to double down on the Tories’ disastrous mistakes – lurching desperately towards a culture war on climate, rather than delivering the plan we need to strengthen Britain’s energy security.
Only Labour has a plan to cut bills and boost energy security once and for all – with our plan to make Britain a clean energy superpower by 2030.
