Have you say on energy bills and fuel poverty – Come along to “Parliament Talks energy bills” in Glasgow on 7 February


  • Are you struggling with energy bill costs?
  • Do you need information on how to reduce your bills and make your homes more energy efficient?

On 7th February, Glasgow residents will have the opportunity to discuss issues such as energy company profits, fuel prices, and how to make their homes more energy efficient at a special Parliamentary event held at Anniesland College.  This event offers people the chance to have their say to John Robertson, MP for Glasgow North West and Member of the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee, and to meet with representatives from consumer advice organisations.

John Robertson MP for Glasgow North West said: “People in Glasgow and around the UK are worried about rising fuel prices and often find it hard to get the best deal from their energy supplier. If people have something to say about energy companies or just want to find out more about what Parliament is doing to tackle energy prices, profits, and fuel poverty they should come along to the ‘Parliament Talks energy bills’ event.”

The event kicks off with a chance to discuss energy issues with MPs and representatives of organisations such as Citizens Advice Scotland, Energy Action Scotland and Glasgow Home Energy Advice Team (G-Heat). There will also be an opportunity to hear from John Robertson MP and debate energy issues with Energy and Climate Change Committee Members and energy stakeholders. Points raised will help to inform and influence the Energy and Climate Change Committee’s current inquiry into ‘Energy Prices, Profits and Poverty’.

‘Parliament Talks energy bills’ is the latest in a series of subject-specific events organised around the UK by the Houses of Parliament Outreach Service, highlighting Parliament’s role in scrutinising public policy and holding the Government to account.  Tim Yeo MP, Chair of the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee and fellow Committee Members will also attend the event.

For people unable to make it along to the event, information on how Parliament looks at energy issues, and how people can get involved, will be available on the ‘Parliament Talks energy bills’ website:  www.parliament.uk/talks-energy-bills
