Energy bills top voter concern list
SOARING energy prices are one of voters’ top concerns, according to research.
More than half of 2000 people surveyed (56 per cent) believe the issue should be a priority for politicians.
The findings were released just after a tariff hike previously announced by British Gas came into effect, adding £76 to the average annual dual fuel bill.
In Which?’s research, only social care for older people (68 per cent) ranked higher as a concern.
Alex Neill, Which? managing director of home products and services, said: “Consumers are sick of the endless debate about energy prices and want action immediately.”
