ENERGY PRICE INCREASES AND WINTER FUEL ALLOWANCE

That this House notes with concern the decision taken by British Gas and Npower to increase the prices of gas and electricity greatly above the rate of inflation and the impact this has on vulnerable pensioners; and therefore calls on the Government to monitor closely the profits of the energy companies and to introduce a windfall tax in order to fund a one-off increase in the winter fuel allowance should those companies' profits rise excessively.
