Ogmore MP petitions the Prime Minister to freeze gas and electricity bills

Huw Irranca-Davies, Labour MP for Ogmore, hand-delivered a petition signed by Ogmore residents to 10 Downing Street.

Mr Irranca-Davies said:

“David Cameron and his Conservative-led government have failed to lead on gas and electricity prices. Hard-working Ogmore constituents are being pushed into fuel poverty due to rising prices and the cost of living crisis.”

He added:

“Under David Cameron, gas and electricity prices have risen £300 for the average household. Energy has played a critical role in the history of the valleys and in the history of Wales, it’s shameful that this government cannot deliver affordable gas and electricity to Wales and the rest of Britain.”

“Labour has pledged to freeze fuel prices and get a better deal long-term for consumers”
