Boris Johnson scrambles for plan to avert £600 energy bills hike after admitting families need ‘help’
The Independent says Boris Johnson has admitted he must do more to protect families from a £600 energy bill hike but is scrambling for a solution just weeks before the crisis is set to strike.
The prime minister revealed he has taken personal control of the controversy, as he was accused of a “vacuum of leadership” by Labour, which has put forward a plan to hold down costs.
Ministers have focused on boosting the £140-a-year warm homes discount for the poorest households when the energy price cap soars in April, but Mr Johnson has now appeared to acknowledge that will not be enough.
