Freeze That Bill Campaign Comes To Brighton and Hove

Freeze That Bill campaignLabour's campaign to freeze energy bills kicked off in Brighton and Hove this October when activists and candidates gathered on the seafront to show their support for Freeze That Bill.

Labour’s General Election candidates Nancy Platts, Purna Sen and Peter Kyle launched Freeze That Bill on the seafront and then headed for a day of campaigning.

Under David Cameron’s government, gas and electricity bills have gone up by £300 for the average household and the Labour Party says consumers deserve a fairer deal.

I am talking to residents in Kemptown and Peacehaven who are having to choose between heating their homes during the winter or having a hot meal," Nancy Platts. 

Ed Miliband has pledged to freeze gas and electricity bills until 2017, saving an average business £1,800 a year, and a typical family £120.  

Labour would also reform the industry during this time to make it fairer in the future.

Nancy Platts, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Brighton Kemptown & Peacehaven, said with wages down and energy bills up for yet another year, local people need a Government that is on their side.

Nancy said: "In 2009 I helped set up the End Fuel Poverty Campaign after seeing increasing numbers of people struggling to pay their energy bills.  

“Under this Tory/Lib Dem Government, the situation is getting worse and I am talking to residents in Kemptown and Peacehaven who are having to choose between heating their homes during the winter or having a hot meal.

“This is unacceptable in 21st Century Britain and I welcome Ed Miliband's promise to freeze gas and electricity bills if Labour is returned to government in 2015."
