Energy Prices and Fuel Poverty in the House

Off to try and get into the Energy Debate on fuel poverty this afternoon.

Great morning in the House. Lauren and Mike were amazing before the Department of Energy and Climate Change all party Select Committee, giving evidence on heating oil, the lack of competition, oil buying clubs, the savings they make,the problems on pricing and so much more. I will post the full details of their evidence online, and on the blog, but they were praised by Labour's Albert Owen for their evidence, and two comments of the Committee Chairman stood out: "a lot of the country will be interested in what you are doing" and, as they finished - "You have made a big difference to our conclusions"
Afterwards was able to take them in to listen to PMQs in the main chamber
