Meanwhile in that other poll!
MINISTERS are facing a furious backlash over “green taxes” with a poll revealing that seven in 10 people want them removed from their energy bills.
As the cost of living crisis continues to bite, a Techne UK poll for Express.co.uk has revealed 69 percent want the green levy removed from their energy bills to cut the price of heating their home and electricity. The findings have been seized on by Tory backbench MPs who have been urging Boris Johnson to pull back from his Net Zero commitments on the climate change agenda.
Bishop Auckland MP Dehenna Davison said: “I agree! Would be willing to accept even a temporary cut – say 12 months – whilst bills are so painfully high.”
North West Leicestershire MP Andrew Bridgen added: “I and many others were proposing that the Green Levy should have been cut or suspended in the Spring Statement.
“There is never a bad time to do the right thing so it should be cut now, the Government knows it has to do more to help.
“With the cost of living crisis and the cost of energy is a huge part of that.”
