Autumn Statement Response: Chancellor offers nothing to address the energy debt crisis

Responding to today’s Autumn Statement, Heidi Chow, Executive Director of Debt Justice said:

“The Chancellor has prioritised the interests of big business over the needs of households that are weighed down by heavy debt. Whilst a handful of shareholders and CEOs will be popping corks tonight, over 6 million people still need government action on energy debt relief. Without this, people are facing a daily struggle to put food on the table and stay warm over what is going to be a long and difficult winter.”
