Rebecca Long Bailey responds to utilities customers being overcharged by £24.1bn

Commenting on Citizens Advice’s calls for utilities customers to be compensated after being overcharged by £24.1bn, Shadow Secretary for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Rebecca Long Bailey, said:

“It’s important not to forget the human face behind these eye watering sums – families pushed into hardship paying for the basic necessities of life, ripped off by profiteers and failed by regulators.

“These figures illustrate why Labour’s plan to bring water and energy networks back into public ownership is so popular. Households across the UK have been taken for a ride, and we cannot afford to let it continue.”
