Meg Hillier MP, Labour's Shadow Energy Secretary, commenting on reports in the Telegraph today that household energy bills will rise by more than £300 a year as a result of the Tory-led Government’s green policies, said:
"This high-level leak reveals incompetence at the heart of the Government over energy prices and climate change. The Prime Minister's advisers are knifing Chris Huhne's policies. All the while, people's energy bills are set to soar this winter, making life harder for families whose living standards are being squeezed, while ministers sit on their hands. It's a shambles."
