'Don't wait to save on energy bills' says MP

Western Telegraph: ACT NOW: Stephen Crabb MP is backing Mind the Gap, a campaign run by national charity Turn2us. ACT NOW: Stephen Crabb MP is backing Mind the Gap, a campaign run by national charity Turn2us.

A CHARITY that helps people take practical steps to lower their energy bills has been backed by local MP Stephen Crabb.

Mind the Gap, a campaign run by national charity Turn2us, highlights six simple steps which can reduce energy costs.

These money-saving tips include checking if you are entitled to any extra benefit, accessing grants and schemes to help with bills, getting help to improve energy efficiency and checking energy tariffs.

Speaking at an event hosted by the charity, Mr Crabb said: “It is vitally important that people in Pembrokeshire are aware of the support that is available to them to help manage and lower their energy bills.

“The Government is currently legislating to force energy companies put customers on the lowest possible tariff, but it is important that people realise that they do not have to wait to save money on their bills.

“One step of the Turn2us campaign encourages people to use the resources on the charity’s website to check their energy tariff and to follow the guidance about how to switch if they find a better deal.

“The website is a fantastic resource that brings together a lot of good advice about how to lower energy costs and I would encourage constituents to log-on and see if they can save money using the six simple steps.”

What exactly is this bloke on? His mob helped create the term 'fuel poverty'.

When did he have to make the choice to heat or eat?

For flippin' blinks sake.

Another charity springs up, surely Mr Crabb should be pushing for a simple way we could reduce fuel bills, stopping or reducing the massive sibsidies for green energy schemes i.e windfarms and solar energy suppliers.

What is this guy up to anything to built his profile but when it comes to the fiasco at PCC he is conspicuous by his absence a lot of people are disgusted with what is going on in the Kremlin, if he wants to be re elected I suggest he gets of his backside and start forcing some changes at PCC.
