PM unveils energy support package for consumers and businesses

Liz Truss 1

The government has launched a raft of initiatives to reduce the impact of spiralling energy costs for people and businesses in a bid to provide certainty and curb inflation

Prime minister Liz Truss told the House of Commons that from October the average household would pay no more than £2,500 per year for their energy bills for the next two years, which she said would save a typical household £1,000 per year.

This support is given in addition to the £400 energy bill support unveiled by former chancellor of the exchequer Rishi Sunak earlier this year.
