Warning poorest households are struggling to get £150 energy rebate
BBC News says some of the poorest households in England and Wales are struggling to access council tax rebates to help offset their soaring energy bills, a charity has warned.
National Energy Action said those who did not pay council tax by direct debit were affected, with many facing long waits for the £150 payouts.
Councils say they are struggling to administer the rebates at short notice.
But the government said they should make the payouts without further delay.
Councils were expected to start paying the £150 rebates from April, when the energy price cap went up by £693 for the average household, leaving many struggling to pay their bills.
