East Kent FOC Letter Fuel Poverty

The number of families living in fuel poverty is far higher than thought and is likely to rise from 6.4m to 9m people over the next five years.

A recent survey for Friends of The Earth has revealed widespread public anger about the big six energy giants profits and rising bills. We have received overwhelming  public support for our call to
The Government to launcha Public Inquiry into the power of the big six - 86% and support for a levy on their excessive profits is alsohigh at 71%.

Over 30.000 have backed our Final Demand Campaign and signed our petition to David Cameron calling on him to launch an independent Public Inquiry. Green Party Leader - Caroline Lucas MP has tabled an Early Day Motion in Parliament calling for a levy on the big six energy giants with the support of over 100 MPs. The big six are makin massive profits while at the same time failing to make the investments needed in renewable energy The UK needs

The Chancellor failed in the budget to address the failings of the big six and their growing profits and above allgrowing national scandal of fuel poverty.

Yours Sincerely.
