The Energy select committee will question energy companies next week and MPs are asking the public what they want asking.
The select committee is asking for people across the country to pose their own questions to the energy companies through Twitter, using the hashtag #AskEnergyFirms. The deadline for submitting questions is midnight on Thursday 11th April.
The session in Parliament follows from the successful launch of the inquiry ‘Energy Prices, Profits and Poverty’ in Anniesland, Glasgow. Local Energy committee member, John Robertson MP, brought the committee to his home town, where members of the public and local organisations had their say on the state of the energy market.
Mr Robertson said: “Understandably, when we were in Anniesland College, most of the questions people wanted answering were about rising prices. I think the obscene profits, coupled with rising prices, is disgusting – and I certainly have some questions of my own to ask. But this is the chance for people across the country to have their say.”
The select committee will questions senior figures from a number of energy companies on Tuesday 16th April.
