Increasing energy prices are a nightmare for pensioners

June 16, 2008

Dear (Hastings & St Leonards Observer) Editor,

A St Leonards couple have contacted me stating that their electricity Direct Debit has increased to a monthly charge of £82 (up from £53) for a small flat.

This was based on calculations that the couple could not understand, so they cancelled their Direct Debit, in order to check the charges.

Their first quarter bill confirms the scale of the increase and there has been a further increase in the second quarter.

It is clear that the Winter Fuel Payment for pensioners might need to go up from £200 to over £500 per household just to hold the line.

What is our MP going to do about it?

Yours sincerely,

[What do you think?]
