New figures show that the number of families that can’t afford to heat their home this winter has hit a record high of one million. That's about one in six families.
The average family’s electricity and gas bills have increased by £300 since 2010, whilst 1.03 million families with children haven’t been able to afford to heat their homes this Christmas.

An energy price freeze until 2017 would save the average family £120 and better insulation for five million homes that would save the average family over £270.

Families cannot afford another five years of this Government. Millions of families in every region would benefit from an energy price freeze and plans to end cold homes, saving hundreds of pounds each year.
