Meg Hillier MP, Labour’s Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, commenting on Scottish Power’s price rise, said:

"The news of these price hikes shows that, contrary to his pre-election promises, David Cameron has failed to take action to curb excessive rises in the cost of energy. Having announced plans to abolish the energy price watchdog Consumer Focus, and scrapped the Warm Front scheme, the Tory-led Government is showing that it is not on the side of consumers or interested in tackling fuel poverty."
