Richard Fuller MP had the opportunity to vote in the House of Commons for an energy price freeze and to reform the energy market, but instead he voted against it.
This freeze on energy prices would have helped thousands of households in Bedford & Kempston, many of whom are constantly struggling with the cost-of-living crisis. 8874 households are living in fuel poverty – that’s 13.7% of all households!
But once again, Richard Fuller and the Government have ignored the issue, despite the fact that typical energy bills have already risen by over £300 since they came to power.
This vote in Parliament clearly shows that David Cameron's Tories only stand up for a privileged few, and certainly not for us in Bedford and Kempston.
